Gracie's Choice is a 2004 television movie that premiered on Lifetime, written by Joyce Eliason and directed by Peter Werner, and starring Kristen Bell, Anne Heche, Diane Ladd, and Kristin Fairlie.
The film follows 17-year-old Gracie (Bell) who, for as long as she can remember, has been raising her four siblings, each of whom has a different, absent father and their mother (Rowena) is on the fast track to self-destruction. When these children's lives are about to be pulled apart, Gracie first takes on temporary parental responsibility and finally seeks to gain custody of her brothers. Gracie gives up a lot for her brothers and will do anything to keep them all together as a family.
Gracie's Choice was well received by critics, particularly praising both Bell and Heche's performances. Heche was nominated for the 2004 Emmy Award for "Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Miniseries or a Movie".
