There is nothing that I can say about this movie that will do it any justice. It is a wonderful movie, and it is entirely thanks to Ben Kingsley’s performance in the title role. He is simply captivating. I wanted the movie to go on and on, telling me more about this mysterious man and his dream, but I suppose all good things must come to an end. I enjoyed learning about the history of India and South Africa too. I wonder, though, how many of the historical details were “Hollywoodized”. Regardless, this movie is a must see. [Note: I will readily admit to being quite ignorant of India’s history and Gandhi’s role in it, so I apologize if I sound like I am taking a political stance with this review.] (*****)
