Amazing Grace (2006) short review

Nicely made, but very conventional heroic biopic, about William Wilberforce, the British politician who in the 1790s-1800s led the fight to abolish slavery. It helps that Ioan Gruffudd is so pretty to look at, and Romola Garai as his fiance/wife has GREAT late 18th c. costumes and wigs (altho her makeup was very modern leading lady in my opinion).
