Writer/director Paul Solet has informed us that the full length feature GRACE is now
complete, and hitting the Sundance Film Festival. Eight months pregnant, and preoccupied
with both a natural childbirth and a pure-body lifestyle, Madeline Matheson, played with
merciless compassion by Jordan Ladd, deflects her demanding mother-in-law's insistent
pressure for standard hospital treatment, instead opting for the peaceful companionship of
a trusted midwife. Though reluctantly compliant, her husband remains supportive of her
choices until a sudden tragic accident leaves her unborn baby lifeless inside of her.
Madeline remains determined to carry the stillborn baby to term, where she miraculously
wills the delivered corpse into life. But it is not too long before the increasingly isolated
mother realizes that something is not right with baby Grace, and she must make horrible
sacrifices to keep her living.

In his feature debut, writer/director Paul Solet assuredly approaches the medium,
displaying a cocksure confidence in his construction of this modern horror fable. He relies
upon a precise and slow-building technical elegance, supplemented by fearless
performances and the ever-elusive gift of a genuinely frightening story, to violate the
sanctity of a mother’s love and create true horror. Seething with a kind of sophisticated
terror uncommon for its genre, Grace effortlessly uncoils an atmosphere of immense
discomfort and subtle intensity, while quietly creeping into the spine and slicing into our
most primal fears.

Alright, I have a serious problem with this movie. Actually it's not much of a problem, it's
more of a complaint really. I have seen Paul Solet's Grace a few times now, and it just
makes me more upset when I watch it. What's my complaint you ask? My biggest
complaint is that Grace isn't a full feature yet. We just got done posting up our very
positive review for Paul Solet's GRACE. In the movie we follow Madeline Matheson, an eight
months pregnant woman who is determined to deliver her unborn child, Grace, naturally.
When an accident leaves Grace dead inside her, Madeline insists on carrying the baby to
term. Weeks later, when Madeline delivers naturally, the child miraculously returns to life.
