Friday Movie Recommendation!


This week's movie recommendation comes from Matty with the 2009 biographical sports drama Invictus! It can be watched for free on Netflix or rented through most major streaming services!

"This movie was made in 2009 by Clint Eastwood.  It got Oscar Nominations for Actor in a Supporting Role (Matt Damon) and Actor in a Leading Role (Morgan Freeman). It is the story of Nelson Mandela (as portrayed by Morgan Freeman) wanting to unite his country by using the sports enthusiasm of the South African Rugby team, led by Matt Damon, during the 1995 Rugby World Cup Competition.  It is based on a true story but is not a documentary." - Matty


Quote of the Week
