The 42-year-old Elizabeth Shue remembers his childhood through her new movie "Gracie"
Grew up together with her three older brothers, no need to doubt that actress Elisabeth Shue loves them very much. They mean a lot to her. Thus losing one of them, the eldest one, she feels the great lost. And though it's been long ago, the most painful memories of her came up as she filming her new project "Gracie."
"Gracie" is a drama flick, which Elisabeth produces and is about her own experiences as a teen trying to overcome the death of her brother. Speaking on the film she says "The story is about a girl who was 15 and is a great soccer player but she's never had a place to play. Her oldest brother is the star of the town soccer team and he dies in the beginning of the film." Star in the film among other is Elisabeth's brother Andrew Shue, who portrays the coach of the boy's soccer team.
"I lost my oldest brother when he was 27. Gracie grew up with three brothers and I grew up with three brothers. When her brother dies in the movie she wants to honor him, so she plays in his place on the boy's varsity team. ...... It's loosely based on different aspects of our lives," she added. "It's really exciting to tell a story that means so much to us."
