Performers, Cast and Crew:
Rolling Stone - 03/05/1992
"...[Mellencamp's] vibrantly funny and touching film plays as an extension of his music without his singing a note..."
New York Times - 02/21/1992
"...FALLING FROM GRACE has a folksy, collaborative feeling that works well....Mellencamp's direction, like his performance in the central role, reflects an affecting earnestness..."
Entertainment Weekly - 03/13/1992
"...A movie of heart, subtlety, and dramatic zest..."
Los Angeles Times - 02/21/1992
"...There's a sharp, novelistic sense of observation in the way the characters bounce off each other's time-worn hostilities. The dialogue has an emotional subtext -- an undertow of feeling..."
Chicago Sun-Times - 05/15/1992
"...Mellencamp turns out to have a real filmmaking gift. His film is perceptive and subtle....The characters created here with McMurtry are three-dimensional and fully realized..."
Jetting in from Los Angeles, singer Bud Parks and his wife Alice, return to his Indiana hometown to celebrate his grandfather's 80th birthday. But once there, Bud immediately returns to the wild ways of his youth, putting his marriage in jeopardy.
The pressure of stardom and life on the road have left aging country music singer Bud Parks empty and depressed. He hopes a trip home to celebrate his grandfather's 80th birthday will rejuvenate him. Instead, it proves disastrous, as Bud succeeds in destroying everything he's worked so hard for.
