Please note the following video is missing the first several minutes of the film.
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.

3 thoughts to “Amazing Grace (2006)”
What a powerful movie! A great example of faith and standing up for what is right against all odds. Every person should watch this and learn what it means to fight for the rights of ALL.
This is a wonderful movie. The thing I like about this film is William Wilberforce fought year-after-year for over 20 years to abolish the slave trade in Great Britain, because he know that the slave trade goes against the will of God. He never gave up no matter what.
This movie is really well done. It also has an impressive cast. Based on the true story of William Wilberforce, who was inspired by Jon Newton, the songwriter of Amazing Grace. He continues on the work to abolish the slave trade. He is determined to succeed against much opposition. I also like that it showed marriage to a companion that was a good supporter of his cause, he chose someone that really strengthened him in the cause that he chose to fight.
