Nathan Weinbender reviews "Amazing Grace"

May 13, 2019

"Amazing Grace," a concert film that depicts the recording of a 1972 Aretha Franklin album of the same name, has long been high on lists of movies that were never finished. After a long and troubled post-production period, "Amazing Grace" is -- somewhat miraculously -- in theaters, and Nathan Weinbender says it's a powerful testament to perhaps the greatest vocalist of a generation.
