- A Look at Gracie's Choice with cast and crew
Top Customer Reviews
Kristen Bell delivers an inspiring performance as Gracie, an intelligent teenager with a strong will and loyalty to her brothers. She spent most of her childhood taking care of them (as well as her mother) while traveling in and out forty-one different schools.
Anne Heche plays her mother Rowena. She uses her children, she uses her boyfriends and she uses her mother to fill her addictions. This is one of Heche's most difficult roles and she does an excellent job of making the audience hate her.
With the help of a school counselor and a social worker Gracie files for emancipation from her mother. She eventually fights to terminate parental rights all together so she won't have to worry about her three younger brothers being taken away from her and being put into separate foster homes. Going to school, achieving A's, working part-time and taking care of a household is a lot to ask most adults never mind a teenager. Gracie proves it's doable.
With so many children being abused and separated and lost in the system it's nice to see a story where the system worked to help one family stay together. Life is full of choices and there comes a time when someone has to decide to make the right one. Gracie's choice is a perfect example of how one girl's choice changes the cycle of abuse in her family. Great film. Reviewed by M. E. Wood.
This is a true story of hope and unconditional love
