The documentary Amazing Grace is turning into an amazing legal drama

The Sydney Pollack-directed film about Aretha Franklin recording her eponymous 1972 album — shot in the ’70s but never released due to its unsynchronized footage and sound — has been pulled from the Toronto International Film Festival lineup

The festival released a statement confirming the cancellation on its site
