Description: 1992 dramatic film based on the 1989 novel of the same name by Bryce Courtenay. Set in South Africa during World War II, the film centers on the life of Peter Philip 'Peekay or PK' Kenneth-Keith (Guy Witcher), a young English boy raised under apartheid, and his conflicted relationships with a German pianist, a Coloured boxing coach, and an Afrikaner romantic interest. Directed and edited by John G. Avildsen, the film stars Stephen Dorff, John Gielgud, Morgan Freeman, Armin Mueller-Stahl and (a then-unknown) Daniel Craig in his theatrical film debut.

"Certainly not the film adaptation I was hoping for. But then again, Bryce Coutenay's "The Power of One" is among my very favorite novels written in the last 25 years.

Don't hate me because I'm fiction! (29 movies items)

Hate me because I could kill animals and beat and piss on defensless younger children when I was just a child. Hate me because I used that evil when I grew up to join the army and promote racism and apartheid."
