Grace of My Heart (1996)

grace of heartBy Scott Goldfine

Illeana Douglas stars as an heiress set on making it as an aspiring singer in this tiresome drama about the rock ‘n’ roll era. At the urging of a talent scout (John Turturro), the vocalist assumes a new name and scores big as a crackerjack songwriter.

This film, inspired by rock icons Carole King, Brian Wilson and Phil Spector, is undone by indulgent editing and a ponderous second half.
