Amazing Grace (Movie)
This 2006 movie is about William Wilberforce, a Christian, politician, and abolitionist who was responsible for steering anti-slave trade legislation through the British parliament in the 18th/early 19th century. The title refers to the hymn "Amazing Grace" written by John Newton. In the movie, Wilberforce goes to Newton several times for guidance, and the hymn is an inspiration to Wilberforce throughout the years. This movie is very inspiring. Wilberforce had such faith, determination to make the world better, and compassion for all people.
