    Just saw Winnie starring Jennifer Hudson and Terrence Howard last night.   I live in Canada and it appeared on television on our movie network last night. I understand it was just released to theaters in New York (and other parts of the US) yesterday.  Did anyone see it? Any thoughts?  I thought it was okay – not great, not terrible.

    Supposedly this is getting terrible reviews, and a lot of controversy surrounding it. First, it premiered at the Toronto Film Festival back in 2011, but received such a negative response, they didn’t even release it to theaters. The film only holds 11% rating on Rotten Tomatoes. Not to mention, they didn’t even consult or talk to Winnie Mandela about the film before they shot it !

    I wonder why they decided to release it in the US now.

    Yeah, I heard about this film a couple years ago. I wondered where it went…

    Maybe theyre hoping Idris Elba’s new Mandela movie will increase interest and boost box office? Like people might see a movie about hmi and want to know more about Winnie? It could very easily not work but that’s really the only reason I can think of for releasing a critically panned movie two years after its festival premiere

    Is it worth getting once it comes out on DVD?

    I think it is worth seeing as I knew very little about Winnie Mandela. I like movies where I learn something.  I wouldn’t buy it, or want to see it again, but I didn’t feel I wasted my time seeing it the one time.
