Grace of My Heart

Inspired by the life of internationally renowned singer songwriter Carole King, acclaimed feature film Grace of My Heart, arrives on DVD on 15 August 2016, following hot on the heels of Carole's hugely successful concert in Hyde Park, her first performance in London in 30 years.

This influential story also stars Eric Stoltz (Mask), Patsy Kensit (Absolute Beginners), Bridget Fonda (Single White Female), Matt Dillon (Crash) and John Turturro (Barton Fink).
