Amazing Grace

Amazing Grace (2007) is a decent film.  Perhaps it is a good film.  I was frustrated, though, because they didn’t tell the whole story.  William Wilberforce was an amazing man, a true hero.  They selected part of his story to tell, and I know that it was a good decision for a screenplay to focus so narrowly, but it is still frustrating.

Nonetheless, the acting is pretty good, the dialogue is a stiff at times, but at other times it’s creative and helpful.  Historically fairly accurate (as best as I know), but incomplete, for sure.

For more great information on Wilberforce, check out John Piper‘s lecture on his life.  Piper really brings him to life.
