“Grace Unplugged” is a movie that comes out in theaters tomorrow–Friday, October 4th. Here’s a little bit about it from the official website:
Having just turned 18, Grace Trey aspires to more than just singing at her church, where the worship leader is her father—a former pop star. So, with the help of Mossy, her dad’s former manager, Grace records a cover version of her dad’s old Top-10 hit, runs off to Los Angeles, and begins to taste the kind of stardom she’s always dreamed about.
Yet with each rung of the ladder she climbs, Grace feels more and more pressure to compromise her values, further straining her relationship with her parents. Will everything she experiences lead her to reject her faith … or rediscover it?
I was sent a free link to preview the movie, before it came out in theaters, in order to share it with you. Unfortunately, I ran out of time to be able to watch it before tomorrow, so I did the next best thing: I told my 15 year-old daughter to watch it and let me know what she thought!
Here is her bullet-point review:
- Overall, it was a great movie and kept my attention
- It’s somewhat slow at the beginning, but picks up after a time
- The acting is good!
- I liked the way they demonstrated how a “star” can fall.
- The music and voices were good
- The emotional scenes were not cheesy–they were well done.
- There is no bad language!
- I think it would be good for anyone ages 11 and up
So there you have it–a teenage movie connoisseur’s honest opinion!
With the sometimes dismal entertainment options available in theaters, “Grace Unplugged” is a bright spot.
