Red Carpet Premiere of The Grace Card

It's finally here!!!  It's been a year and a half since I worked as the Costume Designer for the film, The Grace Card, which opens tomorrow Friday, February 25 in theaters nationwide. Check for locations.  Tuesday night was the Red Carpet Premiere in Memphis, Tennessee at the historic Orpheum Theater followed by a reception at the National Civil Rights Museum.  It was a lovely event.  The movie is WONDERFUL...very touching and uplifting.  It addresses racial reconciliation and highlights the healing power of forgiveness.  This is a "must see" film!  Call ahead; some showtimes are already sold out.  Here are a few photos from the Premiere...

I did think of you right when the movie came out at AMC! Congratulations! I have not seen it yet, but I will definitely check it out and spread your post around :)

I'm glad this film came out in major theaters.
