“Goodbye Bafana” highlights all the traits usually associated with Mandela’s name: incredible courage and inner strength, integrity and charisma, staunch leadership in the face of adversity. The film however, is not a Mandela biopic — rather, it’s based on the novel penned by his prison guard James Gregory.
