Product Description

Stanley Phillips (John Cusack) takes care of his two young daughters, Heidi and Dawn, while his wife Grace serves overseas in Iraq as a member of the U.S. Army. When Stan receives devastating news about his wife, he has no idea how to tell the couple's little girls. Not yet willing to have them face the awful truth, Stan and the girls go on a spontaneous road trip that takes them to Florida and to his own boyhood home. Along the way he shields them from the news about their mother until Heidi and Dawn sense the truth. It's a story of a father's love and courage in a time of family tragedy.


One of the best performances of his career --Chicago Sun Times

3.0 out of 5 stars A bit of a weepy. 18 Mar 2013
By Sue J
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I bought this based on reviews although I don't normally go for something of this ilk. However, I found it rather slow and flat. The storyline is around the issue of him losing his wife and his children their mother and how he handles it but I felt it relied too much on that and the story didn't really get going for me. It seemed to drift on and when you felt it was going to progress, it seemed to miss the mark. If you like films with not a lot of action and to feel sorry for someone, then you'll probably enjoy this - but it wasn't for me.

4.0 out of 5 stars John Cusack gives a very powerful performance 21 Feb 2013

Not one for those that like action but a very thoughtful performance about coming to terms with loss and facing the future.

5.0 out of 5 stars Rare gem of a film 23 Feb 2010
Without being biased (as a John Cusack fan) I strongly recommend this beautiful, superbly crafted yet sadly overlooked film. The performances are exquisite throughout - especially Cusack and the two girls. Cusack usually delivers excellent performances but I'd say this has to be one of his very best. This character driven story is simple and beautifully played out, (without being political) and has elegant, poignant and - more importantly -unobtrusive track music composed by (the) Clint Eastwood....a man of many talents, obviously!
This DVD comes with special features - interview with Cusack etc - though sadly no "making of" which I would have found interesting, personally.
It's definitely one to watch!

5.0 out of 5 stars Grace is Gone 19 Dec 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Sad but nice to watch, not at all morbid or overwhelmingly sad, something a bit different than the usual shock tactic modern day films, a gentle and moving film excellently acted by John Cusack and both the young girls who play his daughters.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant!! 30 April 2011
Superb acting all round, Cusack plays all his aces and his young co-stars support him like real daughters. Ten out of ten!
