Strengthening Constitutional Self-Government

No Left Turns

Movie reminder

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. We’ll 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 world’s resistance to a more straightforwardly religious movie, though I’m more satisfied with it than is Get Religion’s Mollie Ziegler Hemingway.

If you want more on which to chew, here’s Charles Colson’s homily on the movie and CT’s special section devoted to the film, with a review to be posted on opening day.
