According to director Allison Anders (on her commentary sound track for the DVD) it was a first for a movie to show a woman's waters breaking (in the recording studio scene - however such an event had already been depicted as early as Cinderella Liberty (1973)) as well as having her sweater getting wet because it was time to breastfeed her baby. Allison Anders had also asked for "child care" to be listed in the end credits. See more »

"Grace Of My Heart" is an excellent movie with many plot twists and a great storyline! Kudos to Allison Anders for another FANTASTIC story!! I have not seen anything from this multi-talented writer that I have been disappointed in yet! She always provides a unique point of view in her stories and deals with valid issues. A Great triumph! AWESOME music as well! An absolute 10 in my book! I would suggest this movie VERY highly! Congrats to Allison! Keep on writing!
