Invictus

"His people needed a leader. He gave them a champion."

Newly elected president Nelson Mandela knows his nation remains racially and economically divided in the wake of apartheid. Believing he can bring his people together through the universal language of sport, Mandela rallies South Africa's rugby team as they make their historic run to the 1995 Rugby World Cup Championship match.

Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • Nelson Mandela's favourite band, the Soweto String Quartet, was hired to work on the film.
  • Movie Goof (factual errors): In the World Cup, after the Australia match, the Springboks' next two matches are shown to be against Western Samoa and France. In fact, these were the quarter-final and semi-final matches; the Springboks played Romania and Canada after Australia in the pool stage. (This may have been deliberate on the part of the filmmakers; the punch-up at the end of the Canada match would not have been in the spirit of the film).
  • Movie Goof (incorrectly regarded as a mistake): The Samoan team is referred to as "Western Samoa", the name they were commonly referred to in the 1990s and early. It is now known as "Samoa", or sometimes as "Manu Samoa". However Manu Samoa tends to be used by the Samoans themselves.
  • Movie Goof (anachronisms): When the Springboks are on their way into the township for the PR exercise, an election poster for Democratic Alliance leader Helen Zille can be viewed. The Democratic Alliance only came into being in 2000, and this particular poster (with new logo) appeared only in 2008, several years after the events depicted.
