Amazing Grace

Not Rated, 87 minutes / Cast: Aretha Franklin, C.L. Franklin, Rev. James Cleveland

5/5 (1)

In 1972, director Sydney Pollack filmed Aretha Franklin performing songs from her best-selling gospel album "Amazing Grace" at the New Temple Missionary Baptist Church in Los Angeles. For more than 40 years, technical issues and legal wrangling prevented the finished film from being released. Now, this remarkable behind-the-scenes documentary from a master filmmaker is finally seeing the light of day.

"'Amazing Grace,' featuring Aretha Franklin at the height of her powers, is one of the greatest concert documentaries ever made. It reaches so far into transcendence that watching it becomes an almost ecstatic experience." --Christian Science Monitor
