Grace of Monaco

27.10.14


Biopics are one of my favourite types of films, so I was really looking forward to watching Grace of Monaco. Starring Nicole Kidman, the film focuses on Grace Kelly's crisis of marriage and identity as Princess of Monaco during the dispute with President Charles de Gaulle in 1962. It also reveals her struggle whilst considering a return to acting in Hitchcock's 'Marnie.'

Whilst the film was interesting, it was at times slow, and it has not been received well by Kelly's children, who criticised the script as 'glamourised and historically inaccurate.' Kidman was good in this role, and the scenery, set decoration and costumes were brilliant. It was also great to see Robert Lindsay reprise his role as Aristotle Onassis, and see many 'legends' of the era brought to life on the screen.

The film is worth a watch, and got me to dig out my books about Grace Kelly! (She was so glamorous!) Check out my Pinterest board dedicated to her role as a style icon!
