Jennifer Hudson stars in Winnie Mandela, the biopic of Nelson Mandela’s longtime wife, a film that finally sees theatrical release Sept. 6.

The story covers the “untold love story” between Winnie and human rights activist/former South African President Nelson Mandela, played by Terrence Howard.

It also covers Winnie Mandela’s life from childhood through her husband’s incarceration as a political prisoner.

In this scene, Winnie Mandela is forcibly arrested by South African police from her bed and imprisoned.

The film premiered at the 2011 Toronto Film Festival. But after a less-than-stellar reception, it has been delayed in its theatrical release.
