It made its world premiere at the Los Angeles Film Festival last year, and is now set to open in a limited USA theatrical release (as well as on cable VOD  courtesy of distribution company GVN Releasing, next week Friday, December 2, 2017.

The coming-of-age drama “A Girl Like Grace,” from writer/director/actor Ty Hodges, follows the trials and triumphs of a bullied High School girl who seeks guidance from her deceased best friends older sister.

Hodges’ name doesn’t get a lot of mainstream ink, but you should know who he is, as the 35-year-old has now directed 5 feature films, going back to 2006, with his feature debut, “Miles From Home,” being my intro to his work – a film that was covered a bit on the old S&A site. Not only did he write and direct the film, he also starred in it, alongside Meagan Good, Tasha Smith, and others, in a story about an 18-year-old who finds himself homeless on the streets of Los Angeles, engulfed by the drugs, violence and prostitution, and the young woman he meets who helps him confront his demons. It was a gritty indie, made for very little money, and impressive enough that Hodges was able to go on to make another 4 features – with “A Girl Like Grace” being the latest.

“A Girl Like Grace” stars Meagan Good, Garcelle Beauvais, Raven-Symoné, Romeo Miller, Paige Hurd, and Ryan Destiny as the title character, Grace.

It’s produced by Datari Turner, Carnetta Jones, Matt Keith, Good and Hodges, who also appears in the film and co-wrote the script with Jacquin DeLeon.

The film will open in a limited USA theatrical release on Friday Dcember 2, and will also be available on cable VOD and digital download.
