About the Movie
When rebellious 16-year-old Grace (rising star Odessa Young) takes off on her own, her exasperated parents (Radha Mitchell and Richard Roxburgh) enlist the help of a close-to-retirement detective, and begin the long drive from Perth to the West Australian Wheatbelt to try to find her. Looking for Grace is about how we make sense of the mess of our lives and what it all means. It is a wry drama about lies, secrets, small and large griefs and, of course, love.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: Even as its tone circles back to aching naturalism, there's something tenuous about the pic's tender resolution -- not to mention a teasing sense that more interesting untold stories might lie on the untold fringes.
Rotten: Brooks generally is so bewitched by her characters' opacity that they remain frustratingly remote, even in the rare moments when they open up, diminishing the sorrow of the final-act tragedy.
Fresh: Brooks' screenplay is wryly funny about human behaviour, keenly observing the awkward ways anxious people rub up against each other.
Fresh: The characters depicted are flawed in all sorts of ways, but Brooks's evident sympathy for all of them shines through and the result is an offbeat road movie filled with surprises and revelations.
