A Certain Grace
Photographer Zelda meets more than a model when Alice answers an ad to be photographed from a “feminist”perspective. The two become inseparable as Zelda discovers answers to the unconscious questions that prompted her to work on a photographic essay of women. Meanwhile, Zelda's moody musician boyfriend gets frustrated and jealous and tries to intervene. But Zelda's newly found passion is not so easily squelched.
Nettelbeck's 1992 film A Certain Grace is a sensitive look at a woman's coming into her own, complete with the attendant joys and agonies.

“By showing [the boyfriend's] attempts to be an artist as well as his efforts to salvage the relationship, Nettelbeck gives him another dimension instead of opting for the all too-easy casting of him as straight, asshole guy.” —Noreen C. Barnes, Bay Area Reporter, San Francisco
