Why Is Amazing Grace Rated PG?


With only a PG rating, this film contains fewer content concerns than many others dealing with this difficult topic. Still, there are disturbing and graphic discussions of the slave trade and conditions on the slave ships. Some brief portrayals of slave abuse are also seen along with the cruel beating of an animal. To deal with his declining health, a patient is prescribed the medicinal use of opiates. Social drinking is shown on frequent occasions and in another instance, a man appears to be drunk. The script uses infrequent mild profanities and occasional racial slurs.
