Scintillating Scene: Grace Of My Heart

I told ya I'd be bringing you the magnificant musical numbahs from Grace Of My Heart (1996) one by one, so here's the next one.

What you see here is songwriter Denise, our heroine, finally attempting to record her own songs. Matt Dillon plays a record producer who is hearing the song for the first time. This scene is emotionally charged (see the movie to understand why) and the song is absolutely beautiful. Important to note that the real-life brains behind this tune are none other than Elvis Costello and Burt Bacharach. How can you go wrong?

This diddy's on my iPod, and usually on repeat.

I always thought it was cool that Illeana is the granddaughter of Melvin Douglas.
