    GRACE OF MY HEART is larger in scale than many of writer-director Allison Anders's films, but the film bears her unmistakable signature, focusing the same attention on the intimate details of a woman's life that her smaller films do. As the film opens in the 1950s, Edna Buxton (Illeana Douglas) wins a singing contest; she's promised a recording contract, but when she arrives to New York to collect her prize, she finds out it was really a scam: the labels don't want female singers. After many frustrating auditions, she runs into a manager, Joel Millner (John Turturro), who convinces her to change her name, put her singing ambitions on hold until the market is right, and focus on writing songs for other singers. This leads her through creative and romantic collaborations with several unreliable men, played by Eric Stoltz, Bruce Davison, and Matt Dillon. The film is a heartfelt tribute to the art of songwriting and features an impressive array of songwriting talent, including Burt Bacharach, Elvis Costello, Joni Mitchell, and Los Lobos, collaborating on songs reflecting several eras of pop music. Singers Chris Isaak and Shawn Colvin, among other musical talent, appear in small roles.

      Saw this film in the movies and it fell under the radar. Great songs and story. Illeana Douglas is certainly the fashionista. Can't find my old DVD copy so had to purchase a new one.

      I have loved this movie since it came out, being a fan of this singer/songwriter genre. I catch it often when it is shown on T.V., and thought it was time to own my personal copy. Last half in CA falters, but first half and end are more than worth the price of admission, with a great performance by Illeana Douglas. Highly recommend for those who love this kind of music and story, or just take a chance!

      The package arrived promptly and in good order. This movie definitely flew under the radar. Illeana Douglas is brilliant in it. What a cast! John Turturro, Eric Stoltz and Matt Dillon to name a few. One woman's heartfelt musical journey from the east coast to the west coast. This movie was so well conceived that it is sometimes difficult to separate fact from fiction. If you grew up with the likes of Carole King and the Beach Boys, you do not want to miss this movie. My teenage daughter loves it too. You will be watching it over, and over, and over again...
