Editorial Reviews

Gracie Thompson hasn't been so much brought up as dragged through life by her manipulative, drug-addled mother. Missing meals, dodging cops and landlords, changing schools the way most kids change socks, Gracie and her sister and brothers, each the product of a different dead-beat dad, seem to have hit the skids. Then Gracie makes a choice to get a job, succeed in school, find stability. And her choice isn't just for herself. At the age of 17, she decides to be the mother, emotionally and legally, her siblings never had.

Plus what makes it good is it's a true story!

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.

Kristen Bell gives a great performance as a senior in high school trying to keep her family together after her mother is arrested for drugs.

This lifetime original movie was AWESOME. Gracie is a young women still in high school, she has 1 sister and 3 brothers. Her mom is a druggie and thinks about men and drug before her own kids. Well, the kids are eventually put with their grandma who gives the care giver money to the kids mom. When they tell Gracie that they are going to take the kids and put them into foster homes, Gracie stands up and says no. She says she will raise them. So starts the story of a young girl with her whole life ahead of her and she decides she will raise her 3 brothers. Her sister got knocked up and married. Gracie goes to school, works, and is a full time Mom. This is a story of one young girls fight to keep her family together. This is a MUST SEE MOVIE. A true heartfelt film.

For a movie on "Lifetime," this picture is very high quality, very perceptive. It is a story of how a teenager has to survive with a highly disfunctional, self-centered, drug-addicted mother. Her courage is very exciting to watch, and her tremendous efforts are rewarded in the end. You must see this movie.

This LifeTime made-for-tv movie is a true story of Gracie Thompson and her struggle to survive her abusive, heroine addicted mother and keep her siblings together.

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.

It's amazing how Gracie rose to the situation. How many other young children could or would do what she did. Just to keep her family together. Too bad the State didn't step in along time before they did.

WOW!! I thought this movie was fantastic! We as people always think we have it bad until we hear someone elses story. It was truly inspiring to see a 17 year old girl become a woman so that she could raise her siblings and give them a life that she never had. What a strong and courageous girl she was!!! You gotta see this movie!

My attention was first drawn to this movie because Kristen Bell of the CW's Veronica Mars is in it. After reading the discription I knew I had to purchase it and I am glad I did. Not only was it a perfect cast and the acting terrific but the movie all around was fantastic. I know it was based on a true story and that made it all the more captivating. I highly recommend this movie.

"Gracie's Choice" is a true story and no actress could have pulled off the role of Gracie as well as Kristen Bell. There were some similarities with her brilliant work in "Veronica Mars" and proves again the brilliance of her acting. We hope to see many more good films like this starring Ms. Bell.
