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."
