We just came back from watching "Amazing Grace", the film about William Wilburforce abolishing slavery in England. England, by the way, was the first nation to abolish slavery, decades before any other country abolished slavery.
Words fail to describe how this movie affected me. It hits you emotionally and intellectually. I'm glad that the film did "justice" to the issue and the person. It wasn't too melodramatic and it was actually funny in some places--something I didn't expect.
Anyway, if you haven't seen it yet, don't wait much longer. I persuaded my hubby that this was a better movie to see than "300", he got a little nudge from me at the closing speech.
