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
  • Movie Goof (factual errors): Johan de Villiers the TV commentator who first bad-mouths the Boks and then praises the Springboks, after the final whistle, asks the question of Pienaar: "What did it feel like to have 62,000 fans supporting you in the stadium?" and receives the answer: "We didn't have 62,000 fans behind us, we had 43 million South Africans." It was in fact a SABC reporter called David van der Sandt.
  • Movie Goof (anachronisms): When the Springboks are running in Moulli Point past the lighthouse, a current model 2009 Range Rover drives past them, but the film is set in 1995.
  • Movie Goof (errors made by characters, possibly deliberate errors by the filmmakers): When Francois Pienaar is being escorted by security to Tea with Nelson Mandela. He refers to the security official as Lieutenant, pronouncing the word as "lieu"tenant, as in the French way of saying 'lieu'. Most English speaking nations including South Africa, with the exception of the United States, the proper pronunciation is "Lef"tenent where "lieu" is pronounced as "lef".
  • Movie Goof (factual errors): During the Rugby World Cup Final, security men are shocked to see what appears to be a low-flying jumbo jet, only to see it is harmless. In reality, all security staff were briefed about the jet maneuvers planned for the day.
