What the Critics say
|Cape Argus / The Star
Annette Bayne Given the nature of the story, a little cry is very likely, but you may begrudge director Strouse the damp tissues, given his sometimes obvious manipulation of the tear ducts.
Ivan Sadler Grace is Gone is a well made drama with excellent acting from the entire cast, and should earn Cusack real respect.
|Chicago Sunday Times
Roger Ebert Grace Is Gone is not a great movie, simply functional, but Cusack gives a great performance.
James Berardinelli Ultimately, this is worth seeing for Cusack's nuanced and powerful performance and for the emotions that the director successfully excavates.
Peter Travers Simplicity -- four-square, not sappy -- is rare in film.
Tomatometer A heartfelt, finely acted portrayal of grief and healing.
