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?

best movie on race relations ever!, 16 April 2012
Author: bonniebo40 from United States

We finally got to watch this movie, after missing it for the box office opening night. Excellent movie! I cannot believe it was done in 28 days on a $200,000 budget....just goes to show you can produce quality film without spending millions! Schools show lots of fluff, idiotic and useless movies all the time. This movie should be required viewing at every middle school and high school...not for the subdued religious tones, but for the race relations for all of us. The shot in the end was an amazing message alone. I highly recommend it for all ages. My own sons, 11 and 14 watched it with us tonight and I intend to let them watch it as many times as they want to. This one is a good one to let all the messages of the movie sink into their hearts!
