It’s been nearly a year since Winnie, starring Jennifer Hudson as apartheid fighter Winnie Mandela, debuted in Canada, but Image Entertainment has announced that the film will be released in the U.S. on Sept. 6. However, the film title has been changed to Winnie Mandela, according to a press release from Image Entertainment.
Along with Jennifer, the film stars Terrence Howard as Winnie’s husband and former South Africa President Nelson Mandela. The flick chronicles Winnie’s life through her childhood, courtship by Nelson, struggles through his incarceration, and fight to end apartheid.
