Biography, Drama
With elegance and intellect, director Michael Apted portrays how the British used words as weapons to abolish slavery a half-century before the Americans did with bullets. Across the pond 200 years ago, a sharp-tongued abolitionist, William Wilberforce (Ioan Gruffudd), was chosen by a handful of followers to lead the rebellion against the House of Commons that would end the slave trade. On this bumpy road to freedom, Wilberforce faced threats and opposition from supporters of the monarchy, along with religious and political conflict. The notable cast is rounded out by Albert Finney, Michael Gambon and Toby Jones. The performances, combined with appropriate period garb and a screenplay executed with a poignant purpose, make Amazing Grace truly amazing.
