ONE is hosting an exclusive preview screening in London of the film Invictus and we want to give you the chance to join us. We’re giving away 2 tickets to our event on the evening of 1 February ahead of the film’s national release.
Directed by Clint Eastwood, Invictus tells the inspiring true story of how Nelson Mandela (Morgan Freeman) joined forces with the captain of South Africa’s rugby team, Francois Pienaar (Matt Damon) to help unite their country. Believing he could bring his people together through the universal language of sport, Mandela rallied South Africa’s underdog rugby team as they made an unlikely run to the 1995 World Cup final.
Now, as South Africa prepares to host the first football World Cup in Africa this summer, it’s a timely tale of sport’s potential to change the world.
