About the Movie
Nicole Kidman stars as legendary Hollywood actress-turned-princess Grace Kelly in this lavish biographical drama from acclaimed director Olivier Dahan. Six years after leaving Hollywood to become Princess of Monaco, Grace, now mother to two children and wife to an overbearing husband, considers a comeback in the movies after being approached by Alfred Hitchcock. But with political strife threatening war in her country, Grace must choose once and for all between her life as a film star and her role as princess.
As a big fan of Grace Kelly, I was excited to see this film. In the end, the movie was just okay. They only covered the married part of her life. Nicole Kidman did an acceptable job, but not really a 'wow' like Grace was in her roles. Worth renting, but only at regular prices.
Costumes and story worth a look, but the film is mediocre
Nicole Kidman is lovely, but she is no Grace Kelly. This film had all the makings of a great drama, but the writing and the overly dramatic, long shots of “Grace” got old. The writing was often unbelievable. A more subtle telling of this tale could have been wonderful. I really liked Tim Roths’ depiction of Ranier - he was excellent. I don’t regret having seen it, but keep your expectations low.
I am all about freedom of speech. But why does Hollywood seem so intent on digging up dirt and passing it off as entertainment. I have travelled to Monaco and watched the changing of the guards. It’s awesome and so beautiful. Surely there must of been some happiness in Princess Grace’s life. This movie portrayed her as a bitter, outspoken woman. No grace whatsoever. And in my opinion, not a very good portrayal of this amazing woman.
