  • The movie is the usual kind of film biography of a respected figure from the distant past - honorable, oversimplified, handsome. show more

  • Apted opts not to show the horrendous cruelty inflicted on thousands upon thousands of captive Africans, shackled and chained, making their way to the Americas in ships. Instead, he has Wilberforce and his fellow abolitionists describe the inhumane conditions - in the precise, passionate language of legislators who believe that human decency is more important than money and power. show more

  • A case of good works done well.
