Open iTunes to preview, buy, and download this movie.
Come along on a spirited fifteen-year journey that follows songwriting sensation Denise Waverly (Illeana Douglas) who struggles to escape the shadow of pop-music icons and ultimately emerges a singer in her own right. From the last 1950s doo-wop era to the psychedelic seventies, Denise's experiences in life and adventures in romance stir her genius and inspire the rich melodies that sustain a music empire. In crafting the hits the whole world sings, Denise draws on her relationships with the men in her life: a brilliant but self-destructive composer (Matt Dillon), and her songwriting partner (Eric Stoltz). And in a hilarious and touching role, John Turturro plays the producer who provides Denise support and guidance during three decades of trials and triumphs.From Executive Producer Martin Scorcese and celebrated writer and director Allison Anders, Grace of My Heart is the lyrical tale of a remarkable woman striving to find her own voice in the male-dominated world of pop music.
Glad this is finally available!
Great, quirky movie.....marvelous music, some fun cameo's. Anyone who loves the music business can relate. It's all about the scene at the pool at the end :)
I watched this movie over 10 years ago and have lost count how many times I've watched it since. The characters and story line are so believable it could easily pass for a biography. This movie is about one woman's search to find her worth and make her mark in the world despite the many times she's side tracked by those she loved and failed her. Her character is extremely likable and you can't help but root for her from the very start. The story moves along nicely and is never boring. I can't say enough good things about this film. The music, casting, acting, directing, and editing were superb! The secondary characters were also amazing, especially John Turturro's roll. The one man who never let her down and showed her the true meaning of friendship. I hated for it to end.
Thoroughly enjoyed this movie
I just love this movie. The music is amazing,and why oh why is there no soundtrack available? It's killing me! The music makes this movie, and then the story is second, the characters are all wonderful. John Turturro especially is heartwarming, funny, with some tough love for the main character to pull her out of her darkness. It's just such a touching journey, and so glad her mother does get it in the end, the talent her daughter has.
Ugh, but the soundtrack, where is it?? Need to hear these wonderful songs again and again...
