Ms. O'Neal has her moments, but the decision to portray her as a raving maniac yields diminishing returns.

Most of what Stevens has concocted here is hard to take.

Top Critic

Connie Stevens' directorial debut blends family drama with psychological thriller to ultimately uneven effect.

Hollywood Reporter
Top Critic

The film packs in more characters, subplots, and moments of nostalgic detail than it can gracefully accommodate, and the pacing often feels rushed.

Top Critic

This cumbersome and graceless 1950s-set period drama possesses the reactionary life insights and amateurish production values of a Lifetime soap.

Audience Reviews for Saving Grace B. Jones

I really enjoyed watching this film and I recommend it for people who like movies that are of the drama genre and suspense/thrill genre all at the same time. This film was very unique. Hopefully, my review will be enough to make this movie fresh! :)
