"An amazing film that poetically captures the many layers of triumph and struggle experienced by both patients and caregivers. Remarkable in its honesty, surprising in its humor, and gripping in its ability to take viewers to unexpected places."

"A riveting documentary, 'States of Grace' tackles complex and difficult caregiving issues with frankness, poignancy, and empathy for all involved. Heatfelt and inspiring."

"A precious gift to the disability community, which has been hurt by many heroic expectations and misguided spiritual teachings. I think about disability rights as the hard-won right to be ordinary; 'States of Grace' reinforces that right with great compassion."
