daisygrubber's rating of the film Amazing Grace

It's quite interesting to read reviews of this film from the many campaigners who are very critical of its idolisation of Wilberforce as the great white saviour and the dearth of speaking parts for black actors/recognition of the role black people themselves had in ending the slave trade. It is basically a glossy costume drama which is pleasant enough to watch, but lacks bite.
