Rather than challenging our national aversion to unhappy endings, both in life and in cinema, [director] Strouse plays right into it. He's devised Grace Is Gone to work on our sentiments the way a porn movie works on our libidos.
All three [principal characters] sometimes just disappear into the affectless, low-energy drift of Grace Is Gone. They stare at carpets, curl up on motel room beds, sit on sidewalks, gaze at the featureless American landscape.
Although clearly coming from an antiwar perspective, the story's emotional effectiveness and family grounding give the film a real shot at connecting with general audiences across the political spectrum.
