Amazing Grace

Michael Apted (Coal Miner's Daughter, Gorillas in the Mist) directs this well-meaning biopic about 18th-Century Parliamentarian William Wilburforce (Ioan Gruffudd), a seemingly very nice guy who advanded a number of progressive social causes, founded the Royal Society for the Protection of Animals and argued vociferously against the slave trade. It's a vividly acted, well-shot costume drama that falls somewhere between history lesson and Sunday morning sermon. 111 minutes PG.
