In 1838 Grace Darling became one of the greatest female celebrities of the Victorian era. After rescuing survivors from the wreck of the SS Forfarshire, her quiet life as lighthouse keeper’s daughter was changed forever. Inspired by various, often conflicting accounts, Grace is a poetic exploration of Grace Darling’s life and the impact of her fame.
Grace is a film by Sophie Dixon, commissioned by the RNLI Grace Darling Museum, supported by Arts&Heritage, and Arts Council England.
