This is Amazing Grace right? I saw a trailer recently. Is it the story behind the song? John Newton right?
Have you seen it yet or just passing along the good word from others? It looks like it might be good.
I didn't get the point of the leaves and rain falling on the piano, though. :)

I was asking, because it did look like it might be good... ...It's the story about John Newton? Interesting.

I tried leaving a comment before, but I had a little trouble, so I'm hoping this will work.

First, Rachel, thank you for stopping by my blog. I appreciate your encouragement and moral support on my music teaching challenges.

Also, I think I can help with the questions about the movie. It is called Amazing Grace, and it is the story of William Wilberforce, an English Parliament member and close friend to John Newton, who led the Parliament in the movement to outlaw the slave trade in England. You can find more info and an extended trailer on the movie's website, www.amazinggracemovie.com.

I have yet to see the movie, but I've heard from several trusted sources that it is very good.
