The Grace Card -- Academy Award (R) winning actor Louis Gossett Jr. stars in this gritty drama which poignantly illustrates the everyday opportunities we have to rebuild relationships and heal deep wounds with grace and forgiveness.
The Grace Card -- A veteran cop grieving the loss of his son is partnered with a rising star on the force who happens to be a part-time pastor. Can they somehow join forces to help one another when it's impossible for either of them to look past their differences -- especially the most obvious one?

Great film, 26 January 2011
Author: christhomas1 from United States

This is a great film about grace and forgiveness and what happens if you let anger take control of your life. The acting is awesome. It is hard to believe that only Lou Gossett Jr has been in a movie before. You will not realize that. Mac and Sam are awesome and even the smaller characters are great. It is entertainment with a purpose. The fact that it is a Christian film does not turn you off. There is drama, comedy and action. You will be moved and blessed. Macs character is like people all across the country. It is a real issue that we all face as people. It shows that we can all get along if we will get our priorities right. I cannot wait to see how America accepts this. Oh and bring your tissues.
