Good Movie
4 stars By Candid, Nov 22 2017
3.5 Stars
I enjoyed this film, I found it to be a well acted and filmed (with Cuba in it, I didn't really think it would be anything else.), I would almost be willing to call this movie a 'musical' which was unexpected. 

This movie gives a top of the surface historical view of the first slave journey of captain John Newton, people working on the underground railroad who risked their lives so others may have freedom and it also gives a slight view of how slaves slaves who tried to escape were treated.  

It was a good movie to watch, however, it is not one that I could watch over and over.

Inspiring
3 stars By Rochelle, NSW, Dec 14 2015
A lady recommended I watch this as it was the follow up to Amazing Grace.
I'm glad I did as the story is beautifully woven between John Newton and 100 yrs later the grandson of a young boy that Newton 'saved'. 
The grandson and his family escape their plantation owner and are helped by caring brave people along the Underground Railway into Canda. While they are pursued I felt that there was kindness even in this that Plimpton wouldn't allow for their deaths.
The music throughout was great and I enjoyed these moments too.
I hope you too enjoy it!

A balanced movie
2 stars By Em Kay, Sep 28 2015
Freedom follows the story of family that is enslaved trekking their way to Canada to live as free men and women whilst being hunted by ruthless slave bounty hunters. Cleverly weaved in is the back story of John Newton and his testimony of amazing Grace. Not quite as riveting as riveting as the movie Amazing Grace, yet not as brutal as 12 years a slave.

Powerful and Unique
4 stars By Jono, Aug 14 2015
I enjoyed this film when it released in cinemas, found it to be a stirring and insightful look into the historical first slave journey of captain John Newton and the activists on the underground railroad that risked it all to release those oppressed in slavery.  Along the way the musical elements surprised me, however, there were moments this film touched my heart in ways that few films do.  I'd recommend this viewing for a great insight into parts of history seldom told... and searching questions of faith and conscience that continue to be relevant today.
