Michael Apted, Amazing Grace



A director known for his diversity - everything from guiding Sissy Spacek to her Oscar with Coal Miner's Daughter to the first three episodes of HBO's magnificent Rome series - Michael Apted talks about the passion that drove him to make Amazing Grace, the late 18th-century English period piece about the Parliamentary battle to abolish Britain's slave trade. Apted also discusses working with an English Who's Who of actors in his cast and the film business today for a director who wants to make movies that matter.
