Forest Whitaker stars in an Oscar-nominated and Golden Globe-winning role as brutal Ugandan dictator Idi Amin in this drama. During an African medical mission in the 1970s, Scottish doctor Nicholas Garrigan (James McAvoy) impresses Amin by acting swiftly in a crisis. Installed as the dictator's personal physician soon thereafter, Garrigan enjoys the perks of his new position, until he begins to become aware of Amin's inhumanity -- and his own complicity. (Netflix)
I love Forest Whitaker. He has played some pretty interesting characters so far, including my all-time favorites of Jody in The Crying Game and Ghost Dog in Ghost Dog: The Way of the Samurai, but that is nothing compared to his portrayal of Idi Amin Dada.
