Critic Consensus: Beautifully shot but utterly vapid, Grace of Monaco fails to honor either its subject or its audience.
GRACE OF MONACO is focused on the personal story of former Hollywood star Grace Kelly during a dispute between Monaco's Prince Rainier III, and France's Charles De Gaulle over tax laws in the early 1960s. Nicole Kidman stars as Grace Kelly with Tim Roth as Prince Rainier III. The film is directed by Olivier Dahan (LA VIE EN ROSE). (c) Weinstein

Critic Reviews for Grace Of Monaco
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.
A forgettable movie made with "the best intentions". [Full review in Spanish]
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]
The movie falls short of what could've been. [Full review in Spanish]
Audience Reviews for Grace Of Monaco
This fictionalized portrayal of Grace Kelly's life is a compelling character study until it decides to glamorize her in a heavy-handed, hagiographic third act complete with sacred music and a godlike back light around her in a totally embarrassing ending.
Monaco and France in 1962 made abundantly easy.
So I got a chance to watch this on a plane and actually enjoyed it despite most of the negative buzz out of the festival circuit and a non-existent American release.
Above all the film looks fantastic (even on a crappy back-of-seat plane video screen) and Kidman looks absolutely stunning as one of the most stunning woman to ever live.
I tend to enjoy even the driest of political dramas so the plot here had me mostly hooked even though it definitely deflates toward the end with little pizazz.
So although not a great film, its also not the disaster some have claimed it to be.
