      Tomris Laffly Variety For a metaphysical love-conquers-all tale, "Grace and Grit" offers very little substance around such lofty concepts as existence, spirituality and romantic harmony. Jun 4, 2021 Full Review Jeannette Catsoulis New York Times If you can make it through the first ten minutes of "Grace and Grit" without groaning, then your tolerance for New Age folderols, saccharin voice-overs and seraphic gazes is higher than mine. Jun 3, 2021 Full Review Tara McNamara Common Sense Media Everyone has a story, but not everyone's story is cinematic -- and while the Wilbers' experience may deserve our compassion, this depiction doesn't deserve our viewership. Rated: 1/5 Jun 8, 2021 Full Review Wade Major FilmWeek (KPCC - NPR Los Angeles) It's very ambitious, but it doesn't feel like there's a narrative direction to it.

      Edward J Grace and Grit is a powerful and moving film that tells the true story of Ken and Treya Wilber, a couple who faced the ultimate test of love and faith when Treya was diagnosed with breast cancer shortly after their marriage. Based on Ken's acclaimed memoir of the same name, the film explores the spiritual and emotional journey of the Wilbers as they cope with Treya's illness and seek meaning and healing in their lives. The film is directed by Sebastian Siegel, who also wrote the screenplay and produced the film. Siegel shows a remarkable sensitivity and respect for the source material, as well as a keen eye for capturing the beauty and grace of nature, which plays a significant role in the film's aesthetics and symbolism. The film also features an original score by Alex Ebert, which adds to the emotional impact of the film. The film is anchored by the performances of Mena Suvari and Stuart Townsend, who play Treya and Ken respectively. Suvari delivers a stunning and courageous performance as Treya, who undergoes a physical and spiritual transformation as she battles cancer and embraces various forms of therapy and meditation. Suvari portrays Treya's pain, joy, vulnerability, and strength with authenticity and nuance. Townsend is equally impressive as Ken, who struggles to balance his role as a husband, caregiver, and philosopher. Townsend conveys Ken's devotion, frustration, and wisdom with subtlety and depth. Grace and Grit is a film that celebrates the power of love and the resilience of the human spirit. It is a film that will touch your heart and inspire your soul. It is a film that you will not forget. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/20/24 Full Review Isa J "Grace and Grit" is an emotionally captivating film that beautifully portrays the complexities of love, loss, and resilience. The powerful performances of the cast, coupled with the poignant storytelling, make this movie a must-watch. With its profound themes and moving narrative, "Grace and Grit" earns a solid five stars in my book. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/20/24 Full Review KIMBERLY G I just finished Grace and Grit. Wow. It was brutal...an unexpected raw and stark jolt. It captures a deeply human and elemental experience...and doesn't let go. It's beyond words...I don't know what else to say. This film pierced something in me and it's still underway. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/18/24 Full Review Antoinette R Amazing outstanding film. It's been a long time seeing such an amazing movie. Pure love and rich depth - more more more Thanks for understanding the need for compassion and love and resilience between people and the necessity for community. Thanks Million Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/25/24 Full Review Renee M Having read the book years ago and being familiar with Wilber's work, I wanted to like this movie. I did not. I sincerely believe most of those involved with making the film had good intentions. I felt their intentions all the way through and that is just one of the many reasons I didn't like it. The trying got in the way. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 09/20/23 Full Review Matthew T I have no idea what the budget was for this (it couldn't have been much) but it LOOKS like a $50-75 million production. The camera is so intimate with these people, so present. Everything is so clear and personal and real. And when it needs to look BIG, it does that, too. From the opening scene, walking out onto the stage, through to the last, the camera is used in such a smart, artful way. Simply marvelous direction. And that's setting aside the beautiful philosophy at the film's heart. The idea that we are not our bodies or our emotions, but the ones experiencing these things... that's a powerful message, and a necessary one for those facing—or who have loved ones facing—a life-threatening or terminal illness.
