“Morgan had been meeting Nelson Mandela since the nineties, aiming to adapt his memoir Long Walk To Freedom for the screen. Yet, because he felt it was just too huge a story to do it justice in one film, he'd set the idea aside. Then he was given a screenplay about how Mandela, with his intuition and understanding, had united whites and blacks behind the South African national rugby team. He called me and said he had a good script he wanted me to read. [...] I thought it was a chance to show an example of how one person can affect a whole country by using his creative powers.” C.E.
