Movie Summary

Director:
Pete Travis
Released:
2009
Rating:
PG-13
Endgame, directed by Pete Travis, takes place in the late 1980s in South Africa. As President P.W Botha (Timothy West) clings to his power by a thread, the African National Congress (ANC) takes up arms against apartheid and the country tumbles towards insurrection. Meanwhile, a British mining company called Consolidated Gold believes that their interests would be better served in a stable South Africa. They quietly dispatch Michael Young (Jonny Lee Miller), their head of public affairs, in hopes of opening an unofficial dialogue between the bitter rivals. Young then places his trust in the reluctant ANC leader Thabo Mbeki (Chiwetel Ejiofor) and professor Willie Esterhuyse (William Hurt), to try to pave the way to reconciliation by confronting the obstacles that seem hopeless. As the movie continues, the story shifts between Mandela's jail cell, Botha's chambers, ANC headquarters, and a rented car occupied by a British bureaucrat. The prospect for peace seems even more distant than before.
