|amazing grace review May 20, 2010|
|It's good to be reminded that individuals can truly make a difference when they are in relationship with a community of like-minded people. Amazing Grace highlights the wonder of discovering grace to change in tumultuous times and serves to remind us that love always prevails. Love is indeed a more powerful force than culture or tradition or money and in the character of Wilberforce we find a man who can settle for nothing less than true love even if it cost him his own life. Though he never dies physically in the movie he does die to himself and is born again to live for something much bigger than himself, something we all reap benefits from today.|
|Amazing History-How Sweet the Sound May 10, 2010|
|It was nearly impossible to comprehend the human slave trade out of Africa by the English. It is not discussed and is simply not that well known. This film should be included in school curriculums in the US and Briton. It's subject is THAT important yesterday and today. Showing immense fortitude and perservance over a twenty year span Rev. John Newton (writer of the classic church hymn "Amazing Grace") and Wilber Wilberforce were pivotal men in the abolishing of slavery in the UK. Newton had dealt in slavetrade and spent his entire life repenting. Wilberforce had to overcome in Parliment the the monetary dividends that many in higher society reaped from dealing in slave trade. Remarkable times call for remarkable men.|
|A Wonderful Film - At Last... May 4, 2010|
|Much of what has been coming out of the film and television industries can be described as, at the very least, garbage aimed at minds who delight in gratuitous violence and sex. "Amazing Grace" is not of that genre; rather, it is an informative, intelligent presentation of a past that should neither be forgotten nor repeated. It is a portrayal of one man's courage in the face of derision and opposition from peers of lesser moral values. See it, not just watch it. You'll be a better person for doing so.|
