The character of Kelly Porter, the female bubblegum pop singer who was in the closet (played by Bridget Fonda) was inspired by Lesley Gore, who actually helped compose some of the music for the movie. At the time of Gore's death in 2015, she had been with her romantic partner, Lois Sasson, for 33 years. See more »

Grace Of My Heart is a great rock-n-roll movie. It is also a very good character based drama. The cast is very good with Illeana Douglas and John Turturro turning in great performances. The director, Allison Anders, has made a very tight and well constructed story. The music is great and I also enjoyed Matt Dillon's performance as a paranoid musical genius. This is a very good movie.
