All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
Allison Anders' film Grace of My Heart told the story of a female songwriter whose career closely resembled that of Carole King's. The film followed her as she worked her way through the Brill Building before going out west to fall in love with a tortured leader of a surf-rock band a thinly veiled Brian Wilson of the Beach Boys, and then establishing herself as a solo artist with an album that recalled Tapestry. In order to make the film work, Anders need a collection of new songs that not only recalled classic '60s pop, but also were convincing as hit singles. She assembled an astonishing roster of professional songwriters -- including Burt Bacharach, Gerry ...

The film followed her as she worked her way through the Brill Building before going out west to fall in love with a tortured leader of a surf-rock band a thinly veiled Brian Wilson of the Beach Boys, and then establishing herself as a solo artist with an album that recalled Tapestry. In order to make the film work, Anders need a collection of new songs that not only recalled classic '60s pop, but also were convincing as hit singles. She assembled an astonishing roster of professional songwriters -- including Burt Bacharach, Gerry Goffin, Elvis Costello, David Baerwald, and J. Mascis -- that managed to fulfill her goal. The majority of Grace of My Heart is astonishing, capturing the feel and sound of classic '60s pop from Phil Spector to the Beach Boys. Occasionally, the lyrics are a little too knowing "Unwanted Number", but the songs themselves are wonderful, particularly the Lesley Gore knockoff "My Secret Love" which was co-written by Gore and sung by Combustible Edison's Diane Dane, Costello and Bacharach's collaboration "God Give Me Strength" and J. Mascis' bright "Take a Run at the Sun." It's a surprisingly successful and fresh collection, one of the rare soundtracks as cohesive as the film itself. And, even more importantly, it's filled with songs that sound like forgotten classics.

    Agree with &quot A Little Disappointed&quot

    I loved the music in this movie, especially &quot God Give me Strength&quot Kristen Vigard sang it so beautifully that it was the focal point of the movie. I was so disappointed her rendition was left off the CD that I did not purchase it.

    Fall in love with tragedy

    ''God Give Me Strength'' has haunted me ever since I saw this movie years ago; It was not until I came across this B&N listing of the movie that my obscure memory of the lyrics and melody has finally been indulged. I share the same disappointed sentiment, however, about finding E. Costello's voice instead of the woman's whom I thought all along was I. Douglas! Nevertheless, Costello's version of ''God Give Me Strength'' & tracks like ''A Boat on the Sea'' will leave you falling in love with tragedy.

    A Little Disappointed

    I fell totally in love with this movie. The music was so well-done! I knew that Illiana Douglas didn't do the singing, so I wanted to find out who did. I went to buy the CD and see who did the songs, specifically, ''God Give Me Strength'' since it was a fabulous song. To my dismay, I found the CD and found that the person who sang the song in the movie, Kristen Vigard, was not the one who sang it on the soundtrack. It was sung my Elvis Costello. Bad choice. I was very disappointed and did not buy the album as a result.
