MadameNoire Featured Video

From theGrio.com

Just when we thought the Winnie Mandela biopic was dead on arrival, it has been resurrected. According to Forbes Winnie will get a fall 2012 release.

A version of the film was screened at the Toronto Film Festival in September of last year, but received mixed reviews and considerable backlash. One reason being that Jennifer Hudson and Terrence Howard star as Winnie and Nelson Mandela, rather than South African actors, but also because Winnie Mandela was never consulted during the production of the film.
