Rating: 3.5/5 (3 votes cast)

CFDb Review:

Powerful and yet a little confusing when finding out how long it took for him to completely quit being a slave trader.

The Amazing Grace

Film Description:

The Amazing Grace – Based on the true story of the world’s best-love hymn and the slaves that inspired it. John Newton is captain of a slave ship moored off the coast of Nigeria. He stands at a crossroad in his life, his morality and religion at odds with the brutality of his chosen profession. Stepping ashore, he starts on a journey of redemption that will end in tragedy but proves the catalyst for greater achievements.

A local anthem sung in adversity by the slaves he captures punctuates the film. It will be the inspiration for John Newton’s redemption, and, years later, for his writing of the world’s most enduring hymn, Amazing Grace.
