This is the life story of President Nelson Mandela, the revolutionary leader who was the first black South African to hold the office of president and whose government ended apartheid in his country. Based on his autobiography, the film focuses on his early life, coming of age, education and the 27 years he spent in prison before becoming President and working to rebuild the country's society.

Rated PG-13 by the Motion Picture Association of America for some intense sequences of violence and disturbing images, sexual content and brief strong language.

(3)The King of Comedy (Mar 25, 2014)

Martin Scorsese's The King Of Comedy is a funny depiction of the dangers of celebrity fandom. Robert De Niro plays the ridiculously inept Rupert Rupkin, an aspiring comic who idolizes talk show host Jerry Langford (Jerry Lewis). Still living at home with his mother, Rupert spends his days trying to arrange a meeting with his hero. When he isn't doing that, he's at home talking to carboard cutouts in his makeshift television studio. After Rupert convinces Rita (Diahnne Abbot), a pretty bartender, that Langford has invited them to his house outside the city, the reality of the situation makes itself painfully apparent upon arriving at the star's front door. Trouble is, Rupert's too delusional to take the hint. He eventually hatches a plan with an equally obsessed fan, Masha (Sandra Berhard), to kidnap Langford in exchange for a chance to let him deliver his routine on the air.
  
(4)Kill Your Darlings (Mar 18, 2014)

Hall, TV’s Dexter), an older hanger-on who resents Ginsberg’s position as Carr’s new sidekick. Everything gets shaken up when there’s a murder.
