Paul’s review of Running for Grace

Running for Grace was released on 20th July 2018 and is set in 1920’s Hawaii where a young mixed-raced orphaned boy is taken under the wing of the coffee plantations new doctor. The boy is used as his runner and translator and soon finds himself attracted to the daughter of the plantation owner. Skip forward 10 years and the boy soon discovers the girls father has other ideas as to who marries his daughter.

As I don’t usually find these types of film interesting and as the movie started off slowly, I thought it was going to be disappointed yet again. However, I started to become engrossed in the outcome and I was genuinely willing for justice to be given to the boy. The sheer beauty of the Hawaiian island meant the film was visually stunning and the acting was also very good.

Overall, I would give this 4 out of 5 and it should be on your watch lists.

    I enjoyed this movie. It opened my eyes to the history of Hawaii and the bigotry that the Japanese immigrants were subjected to at this time period. I agree it was a bit slow at the beginning, but you eventually become engrossed in the story. 4 out of 5 stars from me.
