"Grace is Gone" is one of those films that has a profound affect on those who see it. John Cusack plays an average father who, upon learning that his wife has been killed in combat, embarks on a spur of the moment road trip with is two daughters. The pain of his loss is compounded by his inability to tell his girls what happened to their mother. The supporting cast is phenomenal at portraying a real family, and John Cusack is brilliant in his role. Even though it sounds like more tears than smiles, this move is a must see. It will enrich your life, trust me.
