From the makers of Ray and acclaimed director Michael Apted, comes the heroic story of how one man's passion and perseverance changed the world.
Based on the true story of William Wilberforce (Ioan Gruffudd), Amazing Grace follows his courageous quest to pass a law to end the British slave trade and reform society. Along the way, Wilberforce meets intense opposition from members of Parliament but his minister, John Newton (Albert Finney), a reformed slave ship captain who penned the beloved hymn, "Amazing Grace," urges him to put his faith into action and see the cause through.

An excellent visual for the characters and places that are familiar only in writing to students of abolition. Wish they would have covered up the wife a bit more so we would not have been embarassed in those parts of the movie. Very good acting and a complete story.
