Audio/Video. The video is crisp, clear, and free of any noticeable defects. The colors have a washed out look that keeps in tone with the story. The audio is also very good, everything is clear. The surround channels are not terribly active, but this is not that sort of film to worry about that.
Extras. There are a few featurettes included on the disk.
- A Conversation on Grace. This features interviews with James C. Strouse and cast members such as John Cusack and Shelan O'Keefe. It is an interesting look into the film and how a death such as this can affect so many people. (7 minutes)
- Inspiration for Grace is Gone. This is the story of Warren Pellegrin, a Marine who met his wife in the service. He lost his wife to an illness contracted while in service as a Navy Lieutenant. This is his story of how he told his children and how they made their way through the tragedy. (5.5 minutes)
- Profile of TAPS, A Tragedy Assistance Program. This is a look into the program and how it helps people deal with the loss of a loved one. (3.5 minutes)
- Theatrical Trailer. The original trailer that played a part in spiking my interest in the story. (2.5 minutes)
Bottom line. This is a wonderful little film. I will say that you need to be in the mood for something extraordinarily sad with a touch of hope. This is not light entertainment, but it is a wonderfully story told with some wonderful performances.
