Amazing Grace is a 2006 British-American biographical drama film about the campaign against slave trade in the British Empire, led by William Wilberforce, who was responsible for steering anti-slave trade legislation through the British Parliament.  The film also recounts the experiences of John Newton as a crewman on a slave ship and subsequent religious conversion, which inspired his writing of the poem later used in the hymn Amazing Grace.  Newton is portrayed as a major influence on Wilberforce and the abolition movement.
