AUDIENCE SCORE

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

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]

Full Review… | August 28, 2015

It's all beautifully shot, competently (if snoozily) acted, gorgeously lit and costumed, and dull, dull, dull.

Audience Reviews for Grace Of Monaco

½

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.

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.
