A Fall From Grace [Movie Review]

A Fall From Grace [Movie Review] | The movie was suggested by Netflix after I watched The Occupant. You know how somehow all these channels know what to show you and get you interested, that at times it scares me. 

When I read the synopsis of the movie on Netflix, I got intrigued to know the whole story.

Jasmine is a public defender has just been assigned to defend Grace Waters, the woman accused of killing her new husband, Shannon DeLong. What bothers Jasmine is that Grace keeps on saying that she is guilty and will agree to a plea deal if she goes to a prison close to her son. 

Troubled with so many unanswered details of the case, Jasmine probes Grace so that she shares her story.

Grace divorced her husband after he was found having an affairs with his secretary. She left the husband and took nothing from the marriage as she herself is a career woman. She works in a bank and able to support herself comfortably. 

Her best friend, Sarah pushes her to enjoy her single life after seeing her so sad for many years. During an art show, she met Shannon who seems interested in her. Grace tries not to be taken by the affection shown by Shannon as Shannon is decades younger than her. But after three months of courting and spending time together, Shannon pops the question and Grace agrees to the proposal. 

All is rainbow and glitters. Months later, Shannon starts to be secretive and a bit harsh towards Grace. When Grace was fired from her bank job due to money embezzlement using her passwords and codes, Shannon changed totally.

Not wanting to be taken down with a fight, Grace tries to back-track the incidents that happened to her and to her surprise, it was Shannon that has been taking the money from the bank using her passwords and codes. And later she also finds out that her house has been mortgaged by Shannon. 

Grace hits the roof when she finds Shannon in bed with a girl. She beats Shannon using a baseball bat and dumps his body in the basement in rage, before driving off to the middle of nowhere. She calls Sarah for help.

Jasmine asks Sarah about the incident and was told that when she arrived at Grace's house, she saw Malcom, Grace's son leaving the house. And Shannon's body was never found. 

If the body was never found, how could this be a murder case? What will happen to Grace?

Plot: 4.7/ 5.0 I thought I had the movie figured out but how wrong was I. The plot twist of this movie is sweet. You can keep on guessing but when you realised the plot, you might be a bit too late, like I did.

Cast: 4.4/ 5.0 Beautifully delivered and I am satisfied. 

Will I watch it again: I don't mind watching it again.
