Review: Gandhi

Director: Richard Attenborough

Starring: Ben Kingsley, John Gielgud, Candice Bergen

Year: 1982

Genre: Drama

Rated: PG

Length: 191 min.

IMDB Summary: Biography of Mohandas K. Gandhi, the lawyer who became the famed leader of the Indian revolts against the British rule through his philosophy of non-violent protest.

One thing is for certain about this film: Kingsley is brilliant in his portrayal of Gandhi. With subtle acting that captures the voice and mannerisms of this inspirational, charismatic leader, Kingsley helps Gandhi become the cinematic masterpiece that it is. I was also impressed by the music, cinematography and historical depiction of India in the 1930s and 40s. Quiet and understated, Gandhi abounds with the top-notch acting, skillful directing and masterful cinematography of a classic film.

For Parents:
Some violence (beating, clubbing, rioting, a decapitation off-screen) that is probably today's PG-13

My Rating:
