Amazing Grace And Chuck is the story of an unusual friendship that reaches from the mountains of Montana to the highest corridors of world power. Alex English, the all-star forward for the Denver Nuggets and the National Basketball Association's leading scorer of the 1980s, makes his acting debut as Amazing Grace Smith, a character who decides his moral convictions are stronger than his desire to play basketball. Joshua Zuehlke, a seventh-grade star Little League pitcher from Minnesota, makes his acting debut as Chuck Murdock, a young man who leaves childhood behind when he makes a very adult decision. Featuring Gregory Peck as the president of the U.S., with Jamie Lee Curtis as Amazing Grace's agent and confidante, Amazing Grace And Chuck has been dubbed "the Frank Capra film of the 1980s."

  • A film that took courage to do

    By 747whaledriver
    Though I find the premise a little utopian, it is nevertheless a very fine film, well and believably acted by all the actors. Excellent screenplay, but one that missed the opportunity to show the horror of a nuclear weapon’s impact on society and the world. Even a few minutes showing the effects of a nuclear weapon’s detonation would have driven home the point about Chuck Murdock’s nightmare — and the reason for his actions. Otherwise, an excellent movie.

    Saw this movie years ago and fell in love with it. Ask yourselves, what would you give up to make a statement and what you face to hold dear to what you believe in
