Amazing Grace

USA 87 min G

2019 NEON

In January 1972, Aretha Franklin got back to her Gospel roots by recording a live album, "Amazing Grace," at The New Bethel Baptist Church in Watts, Los Angeles. A showcase for the diva's incredible talents and bottomless passion, it became one of the best-selling records of her career. Franklin's label also hired the great director Sydney Pollack (Tootsie, Out of Africa) to film the show. Due to syncing problems, the movie never met Franklin's standards. But now, with all the digital technologies available to filmmakers, Pollack and Franklin's vision has finally been achieved and, simply put, it's a must see.
