A CHRISTIAN FILM FOR THE WHOLE FAMILY

Early Digital HD and Video On Demand Window Begins January 28
SANTA MONICA, CA (November 19, 2013) – One of the best reviewed Christian films ever and the #1 rated movie for two weeks straight on Fandango fan-rated movies during its theatrical run, the uplifting and entertaining drama Grace Unplugged debuts on Blu-ray Combo Pack and DVD February 11th from Lionsgate Home Entertainment. “A moving and meaningful film that parents and teens should see together” (Focus on the Family), the inspirational film will also be available on Digital HD and Video on Demand on January 28th. Grace Unplugged tells the story of a teenager whose faith and family ties are put to the test when her dreams of becoming a music star start to come true. Hailed by the Parents Television Council as “brilliant.deeply moving.[and] powerful” and by the Christian Examiner as “the best Christian movie of the year,” the film stars AJ Michalka (TV’s “Aly and AJ”), James Denton (TV’s “Desperate Housewives”), Kevin Pollak (A Few Good Men), Michael Welch (The Twilight Franchise) and Shawnee Smith (TV’s “Anger Management”) and features special appearances by Christian music artists Chris Tomlin and Jamie Grace. With a star-studded cast, inspiring soundtrack and amazing musical performances, Grace Unplugged is a heartwarming film that “entertains while bringing families closer together.” (Focus on the Family).
Grace (Michalka) is a Christian teen who is struggling to find her own way in life. Against the wishes of her overly protective father (Denton), she runs away from home to chase her musical dreams. While her father puts his faith in God to watch over his daughter, only Grace can decide if she will take the road leading to fame and fortune…or will she find her way back to her faith and family?
“I’m hoping we prompt a lot of dialogue between families, that this movie is a conversation starter,” says writer/director Brad J. Silverman. “At the end of the day, I don’t miss the fact that this is entertainment – and I think we’ve made a very entertaining movie. But when the movie is over, and the audience reflects on what they’ve seen, I want Christians to say, ‘Wow. I love God.’ ”
The Grace Unplugged Blu-ray combo pack and DVD bonus features include two behind-the-scenes featurettes, a gag reel and deleted scenes. The Blu-ray Combo Pack and DVD will be available for the suggested retail price of $24.99 and $19.98, respectively.
