Safety's rating of the film Amazing Grace

An absolutely stellar cast, on very fine form indeed, do justice to the history, the faith and the politics of the time. It's fair to say that there are other ways of telling the story of slavery and its abolishment. And truth be told, slavery is not yet defeated. But the road to creating a world in which all are equal has, and will continue to have, mighty landmarks worthy of stopping at and remaking upon.
