Winnie Madikizela-Mandela 'unhappy' about her biopic

Winnie Madikizela-Mandela is apparently unhappy about the upcoming movie, Winnie Mandela and she allegedly tried in vain to stop it happening because she wasn't consulted before and after the shoot.
 
It's understood that Winnie instructed her lawyers to speak to the directors of the movie. This in a bid to stop it from being flighted in the US last September. She labelled it as an "insult", according to a source.
 
But the director and producers believed it wasn't within her rights to stop it as the movie was based on her autobiography which is public knowledge.
 
The movie's director Darell Roodt confirmed that he met with Winnie's lawyers.
 
He explained: "The movie won't be stopped. We didn't agree on certain things but we're still trying to reach out to her so that she can see the movie in a different light."
 
According to two independent family friends close to the Mandela family, Winnie wanted to stop the movie's flighting because she believes it portrays her as a drunkard who loves toy boys.
 
A family friend said: "She believes the movie will be seen by a number of people and it's going to taint her image."
 
An actor said the movie also documents the controversial death of the young political activist, Stompie Seipei.
 
"Winnie believes that the movie is judging her," he said.
 
Winnie apparently also has a problem with the use of American actors.
