Quote:
Grace Is Gone is a 2007 drama film starring John Cusack as a father who does not want to tell his two daughters that their mother has died while serving in Iraq. On January 29, 2007, it won the Audience Award for Drama at the 2007 Sundance Film Festival.

The film was produced by Plum Pictures and New Crime Productions and purchased by Harvey Weinstein for distribution by The Weinstein Company. Weinstein announced plans to mount an Academy Award campaign on behalf of Cusack. This also marks the first time Clint Eastwood composed a film that he did not write, direct or star in.

I found this film very moving at times, but drying-paint boring at others. I understand why it was made the way it was and in a certain respect I admire its restraint and deliberate pacing, but, ugh, I grew tired of watching it. Cusack's very good, though.

C+

I already knew, she died in a car accident.
