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

Terrible acting and Predictable
19 January 2020 | by ytorres-31590See all my reviews

There's not really much to say other than that it was predictable from the moment Phylicia Rashad made her appearance. Feels like I've seen her portray the same type of roles more often than not (yawn). Writing was very subpar as was Bresha Webbs acting. 2 hrs wasted.
