The family film Getting Grace will come out on DVD Nov. 6 from Random Media.
Directed by Daniel Roebuck, the film follows Grace (newcomer Madelyn Dundon), a teenage girl dying of cancer who crashes a funeral home to find out what will happen to her after she dies. Instead, Grace ends up teaching the awkward funeral director, Bill (Roebuck), how to celebrate life.
Getting Grace also stars Marsha Dietlein Bennett, Dana Ashbroo, Duane Whitaker, Alexa McFillin and Diane Wagner.
The film won four Northeast Film Festival awards, including Best Feature, Best Director, Best Actress and Audience Choice.
Special features include “Making Grace,” a behind the scenes featurette in which Roebuck looks back on the casting and filming of Getting Grace in his hometown of Bethlehem, Pa., including interviews with the cast and select cast auditions; Getting Grace Lehigh Valley charity premieres, featuring the cast at three premieres benefitting local charities; commentary from Roebuck; a deleted scene; and the theatrical trailer.
