From acclaimed director Michael Apted comes Amazing Grace, a moving historical epic about the life of antislavery pioneer William Wilberforce. Amazing Grace follows Wilberforce s career through his 20s and 30s, as he and his fellow humanitarians make the issue of slavery a talking point, not only in political circles, but also throughout the country. They wage the first modern political campaign, using petitions, boycotts, mass meetings and even badges with slogans to take their message to the country at large.
