Storyline

Grace Waters (Crystal Fox), a longtime pillar of her Virginia community, stays composed when her ex weds his mistress and her son moves away. With convincing from her best friend Sarah (Phylicia Rashad), she tries putting herself first, and a handsome stranger (Mehcad Brooks) becomes her surprise second love. Yet any woman can snap, and Grace's new husband soon ravages her life, her work and - many say - her sanity. Shuttered in a cell awaiting trial for his murder, Grace's only hope for vindication lies with Jasmine Bryant (Bresha Webb), a public defender who has never tried a case. Co-starring Oscar nominee Cicely Tyson and writer/director Tyler Perry, A FALL FROM GRACE is a mesmerizing thriller built from unthinkable secrets. Written by Netflix

A Fall From Grace Review
17 January 2020 | by Garrett_ThorneSee all my reviews

A Fall From Grace is the newest Netflix original, and it is about a women who is on trial for murdering her husband. This movie isn't great but it does have its moments. My favorite part is the film is the performance of Crystal Fox who plays Grace Waters in the film. Her performance is definitely the highlight of the movie. Now I would say the dialogue in this film is really weird. And characters in this movie often don't act or talk like real people and sometimes that can pull you out of the experience. The ending moments that I don't want to spoil feel very unnatural and rushed. Another thing that I noticed in this film is that almost all them men come off as rude and degrading. I appreciate that this movie has a strong female lead but do we really need to make almost all the men in the movie come off as jerks? All in all like I said this movie has some interesting moments throughout but certainly has its flaws as well.
