AMAZING GRACE tells the inspiring story of William Wilberforce and his passion and perseverance to pass a law ending the slave trade in the late 18th century. Several friends, including Wilberforce's minister, a reformed slave ship captain who penned the beloved hymn Amazing Grace, urge him to see the cause through.
PG; 1 hour, 58 minutes

The idealist William Wilberforce (Ioan Gruffudd) maneuvers his way through Parliament, endeavoring to end the British transatlantic slave trade.
Rated PG for thematic material involving slavery, and some mild language.

This DVD explores the life of William Wilberforce (played by Ioan Gruffudd) who embarked on a 20 year campaign to abolish Slavery in Britain. This is an inspiring story of a few abolitionists who were willing to speak out against this injustice despite slavery being acceptable and considered necessary to maintain a healthy economy. Wilberforce's faith in God is explored throughout the story and how it influenced the decisions he made. Well worth watching. ( )
