Come along on a spirited fifteen-year journey that follows songwriting sensation Denise Waverly (Illeana Douglas) who struggles to escape the shadow of pop-music icons and ultimately emerges a singer in her own right. From the late 1950s doo-wop era to the psychedelic ‘70s, Denise’s experiences in life and adventures in romance stir her genius and inspire the rich melodies that sustain a music empire.
In crafting the hits the whole world sings, Denise draws on her often turbulent relationships with the men in her life: a brilliant but self-destructive composer (Matt Dillon), and her songwriting partner (Eric Stoltz). And in a hilarious and touching role, John Turturro plays the producer who provides Denise support and guidance during three decades of trials and triumphs.
From celebrated writer and director Allison Anders and Executive Producer Martin Scorsese, Grace of My Heart is the lyrical tale of a remarkable woman striving to find her own voice in the male dominated world of pop music.
