Smart, nice, and soft spoken-these are the words people come up with to describe the Grace Lees they know, so filmmaker Grace Lee embarked upon an project to dig beneath the surface of the stereotypes. The movie doesn't take hold until Lee shares interviews with Grace Lees who astound and surprise her, women who seem older, wiser, and stronger than those depicted in snippets during the first third of the movie. Once filmmaker Grace Lee begins marveling at her subjects the focus shifts away from her self doubts ("I am not a typical Grace Lee!") to portraits of remarkable people who happened to be named Grace Lee. Overall, an interesting concept that yields mixed results.
