Singer John Mellencamp makes his acting and directing debut in this heart-felt love story about a famous singer's return to his small-town roots. Written by Pulitzer Prize-winner Larry McMurtry (Lonesome Dove, Terms Of Endearment), Falling From Grace travels the same rural roads as Mellencamp's best music. Jetting in from Los Angeles, singer Bud Parks (Mellencamp) and his wife Alice (Muriel Hemingway) return to his Indiana hometown to celebrate his grandfather's 80th birthday. But once there, Bud immediately returns to the wild ways of his youth. He risks his marriage by renewing a love affair with his high school sweetheart (Kay Lenz), and risks his life with the hard drinking and highwire antics that made him famous. Like A Star Is Born, Falling From Grace is an unforgettable portrait of a star driven to make music - and desperate to find love. "A vibrantly funny and touching sneaks into your heart with the power of a song." (Peter Travers, Rolling Stone)
