Newest film

Tyler Perry’s latest film, A Fall From Grace, is Netflix’s newest addition to its vast selection of films. Similar to Perry’s films, which are within the same genre, this film is about mystery, horror, and the tragedy that has come upon the protagonist’s life, Grace Waters, played by Crystal Fox.

Grace is introduced as an inmate at the beginning of the film. She is visited by Jasmine Bryant, a public defender. Grace is accused of murdering her husband, Shannon, played by Mehcad Brooks and insists on pleading guilty. However, Jasmine finds a few questionable things on the case, and she is not convinced that Grace was guilty. Jasmine is pushed to research more. Her colleagues are also convinced that Grace is innocent. They decided to revisit her and ask Grace to recount the event that had transpired between her and Shannon.

In a flashback, Grace is a middle-aged black woman who is living the average life. She meets a man, though younger than her, they fall in love, and finally, get married.

After getting married, Grace notices the little things that seemed off about her husband. He is suddenly cold, manipulative, and aloof. She did not see this at first but later realized that he had probably kept her in the dark all along.

But things turn awry when Grace goes to her office, and her colleagues informed her that money was taken from the company. And all of it was accessed through her account. The tension between Grace and her husband escalates, and the scenario turns from bad to worse.

Domestic horror depicted on films

The horror that is very apparent in this Tyler Perry film is that it can happen to anyone. A person you trust the most betrays you after all you have been through. And the aftermath of the tragedy is where the real horror is.
