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 (64) | 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.

Uninspiring from its first frame to its last, Grace of Monaco is a piece of hagiographic fluff that cobbles together tropes from other recent biopics of famous women.

Little is left to our imagination or intelligence as characters spout facts and exposition and we're treated to a parade of familiar historical figures in distracting smaller roles.

It is almost perversely impressive how Dahan misses almost every target and squanders almost every opportunity.

Often silly but never vivacious, Grace of Monaco fails as either a stately drama of the BBC provenance or an entertainingly trashy tell-all.

Grace Kelly's post-Hollywood life may not have been the fairy tale some thought it to be, but you wouldn't know it from director Olivier Dahan's cornball melodrama.

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.

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.

Why wasn't Kidman's hair blonde? Grace Kelly was a beautiful blonde. In every other way Kidman was perfect. Rainier was completely miscast. It was all lovely, but the historical accuracy can't be trusted, and it's just sad such an inspiring, beautiful woman's story wasn't told.
