michael.p.ellis@ntlworld.com's rating of the film Amazing Grace

I don't know how historically accurate all the details are but the story told matches well with what I remember from my school days. If only we had this to watch back then! If this film falls squarely into a period piece drama in being rather polite and all tea and cucumber sandwiches, I still think it has a useful place in the educational curriculum as well as being a fascinating, enjoyably film to watch.
