The godfather of non-violent civil disobedience receives an all-star treatment that borders on hagiography. Director Richard Attenborough, who also produced, spares virtually no expense as he employs a cast of thousands in elaborate set pieces to tell what’s ultimately a simple tale of one man’s insistence on principles of basic humanity. Holding together the unwieldly David Lean-style epic is Ben Kingsley as Mohandas Gandhi. His radiant portrayal was honored with one of the film’s eight Oscars (which included best picture and director). To its credit, the film offers nearly the last hurrahs for three lions of post-war English cinema: John Gielgud, Trevor Howard and John Mills.
