'Grace Unplugged': A Heart-Warming Christian Movie About The Perils Of Fame Vs. Faith [Trailer + Pictures]

Grace Trey is a young singer songwriter who plays alongside her father in a Christian church band but aspires to greater things, dreaming of one day scoring a Billboard chart hit. As tensions rise between Grace and her father over creative differences, the young star seizes her chance to break away to bigger and better things, running away to Los Angeles.

In LA, Grace's father's former manager, Mossy, helps the aspiring singer land a record deal and she begins to rise to fame; her talents finally appreciated by the world. However, as Grace's popularity grows, the shallow side of LA begins to set up her in an unpleasant way: from her manager, to her make-up artist to the TV star who begins to take an interest in her. It soon emerges that the bright lights of tinsel town aren't all they're cracked up to be.

As Grace's Christian beliefs begin to be abandoned and she moves further away from her father, the only sense she hears comes from a young intern called Quentin who tries to remind her that the greater value lies in the things she's left behind.

Written and directed by Brad Silverman, the movie marks Super 8 actress AJ Michalka in her first major lead role whilst Desperate Housewives' James Denton plays her country rock singer father and Twilight's Michael Welch will play sweet intern Quentin.

Michalka, speaking to Billboard, spoke of her view of her latest movie, saying "I love the film. I love how it turned out. It's really heartwarming and sweet." On a more serious note, she added "The main theme of the film is to surround yourself with people who truly have your best interest at heart," she said.

"You can surround yourself with people who[...]want you to make money, or are using you for a certain thing, or have a certain motive that isn't pure. It's really about surrounding yourself with fellow Christians and putting God first - I think that is the biggest part of this story," via Project Inspired.

Will Grace Abandon Her Faith For Fame?

The movie's bound to be an instant sleepover hit with its sweet and funny moments looking at fame and fortune but will also strike a moral chord with those interested in the modern phenomenon of celebrity and its detrimental effect on young stars.

Grace Unplugged will be released on the 4th October.
