Description
Forest Whitaker won 27 international film festival and critics' awards, including a Golden Globe and Oscar, for his unforgettable portrayal of Ugandan dictator Idi Amin. This 2006 film presents a fictionalized chronicle of Amin's rise and fall, based on the acclaimed novel by Giles Foden, in which Amin's despotic reign of terror is viewed through the eyes of Nicholas Garrigan (James McAvoy), a Scottish doctor who arrives in Uganda in the early 1970s to serve as Amin's personal physicianódue in part to Amin's odd passion for Scottish culture. Seduced by Amin's charisma and blinded by decadence, Garrigan's dream life becomes a waking nightmare of betrayal and madness from which there is no escape.
