Amazing Grace

The late director Sydney Pollack‘s behind-the-scenes documentary about the recording of Aretha Franklin‘s best-selling album Amazing Grace finally sees the light of day more than four decades after the original footage was shot.

“I felt wrung out at the end of this film. How incredible must it have been for those who were there in person.” (Guardian)

“Even for those who do not believe that God’s grace is amazing, it is hard not to see Franklin in her prime as something near miraculous, with a long-buried film serving as a witness in 16mm.” (Globe and Mail)
