Beautiful, highly talented and restless, Grace is so far undiscovered outside church. She performs there each Sunday with her gifted father Johnny, the praise music director at Freedom Community Chapel, a small town Alabama church. A former rock star, Johnny Trey charted a Billboard number one single 20 years before. When the hits stopped coming he crash landed hard, a one hit wonder. Johnny found Christ and a new life for his family, far from the Hollywood Hills. One day without warning, Grace leaves for Los Angeles. She has landed a record deal with the help of Johnny's ruthless former manager and producer Frank "Mossy" Mostin. Mossy sees in Grace a potential pop superstar - the next Katie Perry. Cutting off contact with her parents, Grace seems prepared to walk away from her Christian faith and music to achieve her long-suppressed fantasy of Hollywood super stardom. Will the experience cause her to reject her faith, or rediscover it? Expand

    Grace Unplugged proves a far more involving, accessible and enjoyable movie than its peek-a-boo marketing strategy suggested.

    Needed more movie to go with its message.

    The makers of Grace Unplugged deserve at least some credit for resisting temptations toward melodramatic excess.

    The film’s reluctance to fully explore its provocative moral conflict renders it terminally bland.

    Feels like a religious tract more than a movie.

    Much better than I was expecting. It's a sweet and touching "faith movie" that doesn't suffer from being overly familiar like many otherMuch better than I was expecting. It's a sweet and touching "faith movie" that doesn't suffer from being overly familiar like many other movies in this genre suffer from. The movie manages to take a look at the darker side of the music industry without being explicit. For some this will be considered copping out, but I think it was an effective way to portray these realities without sacrificing the innocence at the core of this film.

    All of the actors give great performances. Obviously given the fact that this movie gives a lot of references to God it is not for everyone. If you have anything against religion then this is not for you. Still, this is a genuine good movie and one that I recommend to those who have no issues with God or faith, or at least can tolerate the message of faith. The movie can be overly sweet at times, and there are some predictable moments, but overall I did really enjoy the film and find it to be recommendable.
