'Mandela: The Long Walk to Freedom' film

When Nelson Mandela died earlier this month, a new movie exploring his life and legacy was breaking box office records in South Africa. "Mandela: The Long Walk to Freedom" only opened nation wide in the U.S. on Christmas Day. The UK-South African co-production stars Idris Elba as Mandela and Naomi Harris as Winnie Mandela. Critics have given the movie mixed reviews. Our regular film contributor Milos Stehlik, Director of Facets Multimedia joins us to discuss the film.
