Amazing Grace (2006) Poster


Michael Gambon: Lord Charles Fox



  • Lord Charles Fox : When people speak of great men, they think of men like Napoleon - men of violence. Rarely do they think of peaceful men. But contrast the reception they will receive when they return home from their battles. Napoleon will arrive in pomp and in power, a man who's achieved the very summit of earthly ambition. And yet his dreams will be haunted by the oppressions of war. William Wilberforce, however, will return to his family, lay his head on his pillow and remember: the slave trade is no more.

    [Wilberforce receives a standing ovation from the entire House and the Gallery] 

  • William Wilberforce : [Fox walks in unexpectedly]  Dear God.

    Lord Charles Fox : Well, almost. I spent eighteen months being torn apart by you in the House, Mr. Wilberforce. I thought I'd find out what it feels like to be on your side. I see you've got plenty of food. Any of you saints drink?

    Thomas Clarkson : Well, this one bloody does!

  • Lord Tarleton : [walks into what looks like an empty room]  Where the hell is everyone?

    Lord Charles Fox : Everybody's at the races in Epsom. They were given free tickets. I saved one for you.

    [holds up ticket] 

    Lord Charles Fox : A free gift from William Wilburforce.


  • William Wilberforce : We just have to have faith in his integrity.

    Lord Charles Fox : Integrity?

    William Wilberforce : Where are you going?

    Lord Charles Fox : To look up the word integrity in Dr. Johnson's Dictionary.
