From inspiration to opening night, For Grace follows renowned American chef Curtis Duffy as he strives to overcome adversity in his personal life to build his dream restaurant.

"If there were a Michelin guide for documentaries, Chicago filmmakers Kevin Pang and Mark Helenowski likely would earn three stars for their fascinating portrait of master chef Curtis Duffy, an intensely driven perfectionist who devotes his heart and soul to designing, building, staffing and opening his own high-end restaurant. This is a slickly produced and shrewdly insightful piece of work, and the story behind the story of Duffy’s single-minded obsession provides uncommonly compelling emotional heft." Joe Leydon, Variety

"A masterful look at the demons that often drive the best. Go see this movie!" Steve Cavendish, Nashville Scene

"The surprising and disarming power of For Grace can’t be understated… tands head and shoulders above even its closest of comparable films." Andrew Parker, Toronto Film Scene
