I for one didn't know much of the Apartheid 'era' (for want of a better word), but found his film to be a raw and confronting telling of the draconian state of affairs predominately black South Africans were forced to suffer through.
Whitaker's performance was flawless. Bana's was solid.
That last scene in the court room was bloody gripping.
Part of me would have liked to have seen Bana break at some point but I was left satisfied enough at how his story ended up being told.
It's not one you'd plan your night around but I felt it had enough grit and intrigue to earn its rating.
