Went to see Amazing Grace last night – a break in the middle of my personal hell called “taxes.”
Believe the hype. It’s good – in a sense and sensibility kind of way. It’s British – so know that going in but it’s not just the story that is good – it’s how it was filmed, the acting, the pace, the memorable moments, and did I mention the acting?
It’s been a while since I’ve seen a movie that forces you to engage and doesn’t insult the viewer.
I’m not sure how good it related to the student population – most of the movie goers were older and the students that were with me – well, one of them slept, the other two had a lot of questions afterward.
