“INVICTUS IS WELL WORTH SEEING DESPITE THE SPORTS
We admit we had to be DRAGGED to see “Invictus,” because we have no particular interest in rugby or South African politics. (By the way, the word “Invictus” is Latin for “unconquered” – it’s the title of a poem from 1875 about never giving up.) Were WE surprised! We almost forgot what humanity Clint Eastwood brings to his movies. Sentimental Eastwood made the story light up with many personal and touching moments. It turned out to be both educating and engrossing. Matt Damon is uncharacteristically hunky as the team captain. It was also interesting to watch Morgan Freeman (who was excellent as usual) conceal his paralyzed hand. Hopefully it will heal eventually.
