Amazing Grace (2006)

The idealist William Wilberforce maneuvers his way through Parliament, endeavoring to end the British transatlantic slave trade.

Tasteful, but unexcited account of an otherwise quite upsetting political struggle with a excellent cast and lovely period details.

Maltin**1/2: "Earnest and enlightening...Impressive roster of actors lends weight to this well-made film, but somehow it never reaches the dramatic heights it should, considering the passionate nature of its protagonist and the nobility of his cause."
