Michael Apted’s film, Amazing Grace is easily the most underrated film of the year 2007. Ioan Gruffudd plays the charming 18th century idealist, William Wilberforce, whose faith and courage led him to push for the abolishment of the English slave trade. Along the way, he finds his beautiful, fiery wife and realizes what it truly means to be “blind” and then “see”. This is an excellent film for families.
Rated PG for thematic material involving slavery, and some mild language.
