Editorial Reviews

Nearing Grace is an edgy, provocative film which showcases the trials and tribulations a teenage boy experiences while coming of age. Jordana Brewster plays the ultra sexy, most sought after girl in school who lures Henry Nearing, played by David Morse, into her world and ultimately fulfills his fantasy!But at what price?

4.0 out of 5 stars Edgy Coming of Age October 30, 2007
Nearing Grace is old school storytelling with the fresh, caustic edge of today's viewpoint. The movie is set in the 1970s, though it doesn't go out of its way to nail down that time period. It's only through observation of the material (like Henry's old Thing car and period-piece costuming and pot being the drug of choice for teens) and the absence of today's teens accouterments (like cell phones and video games) that I noticed the time difference at all. (In fact, it was weird seeing the main character get a hand-delivered letter instead of a text email.)

Gregory Smith stars as Henry Nearing, a teenager in his final year of high school who's just lost his mother. The emotional turmoil over this loss is in nearly every frame of the movie, and it's effective. The opening montage sets up the loss and effectively brings the reader into the story.

The loss of his mother is also handled really well, not overbearing and not treated too trivially. Her death affects Henry, his father Shep (David Morse), and older brother Blair (David Moscow). Blair runs off to become a dope-smoking hippie type that wallows just a little too deeply in finding himself. Shep quits his teaching job, grows his hair longer, and rides a Harley through town at all hours of the night. Strangely enough, a lot of people's lives end up being somewhere off-kilter like this. Maybe a lot of people would feel this behavior was over-the-top melodrama, but I grew up in places where this was considered fairly normal.

In the meantime, Henry's crush on local teen heartthrob, Grace (Jordana Brewster), blossoms and goes out of control. She's all he can think about - even after he sees her with her current boyfriend.

4.0 out of 5 stars fight back against bullies March 19, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I feel that the film, particularly in the violent swimming pool scene carries a powerful, effective anti-bullying message. I whole heartedly remommend it for teen audiences.

2.0 out of 5 stars Okay Movie March 18, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The movie wasn't what I expected, but it wasn't bad either. I think it was a good cheap movie but I would have to say if you want a good quality one then don't get this.

5.0 out of 5 stars New Twist On Old Formula. December 31, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I caught half of this movie on cable one night and it stuck with me, so I had to eventually buy it. I loved the new twist on the old teen romantic comedy theme "best friend chases hot popular girl but realizes the one he really wants was right under his nose all along", as seen in good movies I like and own (Some Kind Of Wonderful, Secret Admirer, Trojan War, Whatever It Takes). I'm trying to write reviews of some over looked Gems and this movie falls into that categorie. So I bought this one on Amazon a while ago, I have to start by saying the 3 lead characters were cast perfectly Gregory Smith "teen smitten with hot girl", Ashley Johnson "good friend" I remember her as the daughter in What Women Want", Jordana Brewster "hot girl", what I really like about this movie is that the teens were written as deeper, thoughtful, smart kids with some whit in the dialogue between them (kind of like a Whit Stillman Movie), the 70's look and Oregon locations of the movie added to the experience, if your looking for a smarter Teen Romantic Comedy on the level of John Hughes, Some Kind Of Wonderful, you should love this movie............
