One person can make a difference!By a customer from North London , 25 Mar 2007
[Highly rated reviewer]I really enjoyed watching this excellent movie: it was informative in so many ways. It was foremostly a well documented part of history and the story of a very interesting man's life and how he contributed towards making life better for mankind. It was interesting to watch Wilberforce spend years battling to get the bill through Parliament
to abolish slavetrading, and yet get nowhere but he never gave up. I walked away thinking how true it is that we are all more powerful than we give ourselves credit for. One person CAN make the difference! Watch this, it's really a brilliant film !

Put this film your your list!By Gwendlyn (6 reviews) , 16 Nov 2011Excellent film!
Some great acting helped bring this account of the slave trade abolition to life & hammer home the importance of sharing this historical moment.

Very ExposedBy Sall (7 reviews) from Cheltenham , 13 Oct 2011Very good and revealing film, a must see for people who have a conscious thought for humanity. Loved the way it was acted and portrayed. Brilliant.
Excellent filmBy a customer , 04 Sep 2011This film was extremely well done and cast. It was a joy to see the wealth of British actors in it. From Michael Gambon to Ciaran Hines, and Nicholas Farrell (a superb actor not often credited as he should be). It is well worth watching.
Captivating FilmBy a customer , 02 Sep 2011A brilliant portrayal of how awful the slave trade actually was and how Wilberforce and his co anti-slavery campaigners sought to end this horrendous trade. It also portrays the attitudes displayed at that period by those who supported the slave trade and how devious the slave traders were to ensure the trade continued. It also shows that then as now politicians were a devious bunch, well worth watching
