How to edit like this?

Hi all,

I come across this editing style quite often but -apart from the grain- I am not able to reproduce this in Lightroom.

It seems like it's a bit under exposed but still there are no harsh shadows. The highlights are very soft and the overal white balance is very muted and in harmony.

I've tried to get a similar look in Lr by reducing the highlights, lowering contrast, but is just not it. Also under exposing the photo in the first place and increasing shadows doesn't really do the job. Also the graduated filter doesn't seem to be the secret.

It might be a Photoshop filter that's laid on top of the entire picture.

Does anyone have any clue how to reproduce this?

Thanks
