Amazing Grace, the movie, opens this Friday. I blogged about a pre-release showing I saw last month. My wife has actually seen it already for a second time, at another pre-release showing hosted by Georgia Governor Sonny Perdue and his wife. Well likely see it in theaters at least once more apiece, and then purchase the DVD.
This NYT piece offers a little background on production, and suggests something of the film worlds resistance to a more straightforwardly religious movie, though Im more satisfied with it than is Get Religions Mollie Ziegler Hemingway.
