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.

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!

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.

Format: DVD
John Cusack and the two supporting actresses who play his daughters, particularly the actress who plays the older sibling, give out great performances in a film of great emotion and beauty, that sadly will not be seen by as many as it rightly should due to it's flopping in theaters.

Grace Is Gone is without a doubt an all-American story with an all American feel to it. The landscape is unmistakeablely America, the barren landscapes with the occasional house for example, but this is more than a story about a wife who dies in combat and the husband having to deal with telling the children as well as convincing himself that she's gone. The deeper meaning is that this is a fear for all parents, a fear that all humans can understand; life can be sucked away at any moment without care or consideration.

Cusack is wonderfully understate as the father, putting himself across as something of a subdued and introverted husband and father who suddenly finds himself in the position of having to open up to his daughters. Cusack does this with genuine believability and the lowest percentage of fondue possible.

His inability to tell his daughters about the death of their mother makes for a compelling tale that you follow finding Cusack's character slowly becoming the father that he needs to become.

Overall Grace Is Gone is American so it bound to be a little slushy but you won't find many better uplifting films to come from the US.

3.5 / 5.

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.

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

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