Grace is Gone
John Cusack in ''one of the best performances of his career.''
Not quite the threesome I had in mind...
This character study focuses on a soldier, whose wife, also a soldier, is doing a tour of duty in the Middle East. He is struggling at work, and at home, caring for their two young daughters. Then tragedy strikes, and he learns that his wife has been killed. Unable to bring himself to tell his two daughters, he instead takes them on a long road trip to a kiddie theme park. As per road trip movies, they have adventures along the way, but putting off telling them starts to build the pressure. Take tissues.
