Grace Of Monaco (2014)



Critic Consensus: Beautifully shot but utterly vapid, Grace of Monaco fails to honor either its subject or its audience.

All Critics (63) | Top Critics (6)

Kidman seemed a natural choice to play Kelly. She manages to soar in several scenes. Hampered by the subpar material, she seems utterly lost, unable to master what could have been the role of her career.

There must be a better way to salute Kelly's real-life pluck and stature, but if this melt-in-your-mouth lollipop is all we can have, then we'll have it.

Bad casting aside, it's a great production and at least is entertaining. [Full review in Spanish]

Oddly, the biggest problem with the movie is that her star, Nicole Kidman, is not a convincing Grace Kelly. [Full review in Spanish]

Audience Reviews for Grace Of Monaco


This fictionalized portrayal of Grace Kelly's life is a relatively absorbing character study until it finally decides to glamorize her with sacred music and a godlike back light behind her in a heavy-handed, hagiographic third act that feels terribly embarrassing.

Monaco and France in 1962 made abundantly easy.

Four stars because I thoroughly enjoyed watching this movie. Based on real events, loosely, but it did what a good historical drama is supposed to do. It made me want to know more. It is not an overview of the life of the Princess, just a snippet. I'm glad I didn't read the reviews first.
