Movie-A-Day #30: Gandhi (1982).

January 30, 2011

Richard Attenborough’s “Gandhi” is an epic biopic of whose mission of compassion and nonviolent resistance was halted by an assassin’s bullets on this day in 1948. The leader of India’s independence movement, Mohandas K. Gandhi was one of the great peacemakers of the 20th century – an era that was surely one of the bloodiest in human history. His peaceful struggle helped bring political freedom to one of the largest nations in the world. He also served as an inspiration to generations of freedom seekers who came after him, most notably Martin Luther King Jr., who led the American civil rights movement.
