Falling for Grace Reviews
Cinematography: 7/10 Way too much soft focus.
Sound: 7/10 Fine for the English speakers. The incidental music is cloying.
Acting: 5/10 This is a mixed bag, to say the least. BD Wong, Lewis Black, Christine Baranski, Ato Essandoh, Roger Rees, and Margaret Cho were fine. Christine Baranski was the best; her discussion with Andrew Jr about how he had to marry Kay was one of the most genuine moments in the film. On the other hand, Fay Ann Lee, Gale Harold, Stephanie March, and Ken Leung were much less satisfying, with Gale Harold being the absolute worst.
Screenplay: 4/10 There were too many cliches from the romantic comedy field. I have nothing against cliches; even the oldest can be funny if done right. There were only a few recognizable attempts at humor. I found myself thinking that I should be laughing at this, but I did not laugh once.
Gale already showed us his great work in several roles but this is one more surprise to us from him.
Gale is versatil enought to make comedy and even so letting us all fall for his charm. Gale Harold is taking another step to stardom and he will be soon rewarded and recognized by his incredible work as an actor.
I believe Fay Ann Lee is a great actress but also one of the emerging directors and we will hear more from her in the future if she wishes to continue her work. Well, at least she is brave and talented enought for that !
