Eastwood’s “Invictus” is a winner.


The verdict is in…'”Invictus,” “Extraordinary Late-Career Run” for Eastwood…’

Clint Eastwood’s new movie “Invictus” is a winner. And the question is, what about Oscars? …well “Invictus” is now going to rule the race

Below what the critics are saying.

Todd McCarty at “Variety” said: “Invictus” is a very good story very well told. Shortly after Nelson Mandela emerged from 27 years in prison and became president of South Africa in 1994, he seized upon using a rugby World Cup the following year as an opportunity to rally the entire nation — blacks and whites — behind the far-fetched prospect of the home team winning it all. Inspirational on the face of it, Clint Eastwood’s film has a predictable trajectory, but every scene brims with surprising details that accumulate into a rich fabric of history, cultural impressions and emotion.”

Kirk Honneycut at “The Hollywood Reporter said: “A temperate, evenhanded perhaps overly timid film about an intemperate time in South Africa.”
