Princess Grace is revered to this day in Monaco. That was difficult for me to understand when I was speaking to natives. Why would an American, of all people, be held in such high esteem in Monaco? This film does a good job explaining that. She is even more special in the eyes of her adopted country than in her native country. The film does a good job of showing how grace, courage and determination can overcome difficult circumstances. We need more Grace Kelly’s / Princess Graces’s today.

As a historic-events based movie, it is worthy watching, but the cast and performance are not striking.

Being a lifelong fan of costume design I found that this was about the only thing worth watching this movie for. Even the dress created for the big Red Cross ball was fabulous, even though it's Princess bride ball gown version had nothing to do with what Princess Grace actually wore. Pretty disappointing movie all around otherwise. Too bad. The Princess Kelly story is fascinating and captured the hearts of the world at that time.

Grace of Monaco is a biopic film starring Nicole Kidman as the late Grace Kelly. When the film starts, Grace Kelly has been married to Prince Rainier for six years and she faces a tough decision: go back to Hollywood and star in Alfred Hitchcock's Marnie or stay in Monaco with her husband and children as they face the tax crisis of 1962. The film starts with "the following film is a fictional account inspired by real events." The film does exaggerate the tax crisis and places real, historical events in the wrong time frame and not exactly how it occurred. The critics and even the Royal family of Monaco hated the film but it is watchable. The sets and costumes have been given a lot of effort and it shows. Nicole Kidman's acting is pretty good (though she fades in and out of accent) and most of her costars do a fine job acting as well. This can make the film better or worse for the audience as it does show potential to be better than it was. I do find the film disrespectful to the legacy of the late Grace Kelly but because of its potential and the acting, I will give it a 2/5. Personally, give the film a pass... it's pretty terrible.

I am a huge Kidman fan, but this was terribly disappointing. It seems they tried really hard not to do anything that had been done before on Princess Grace and so it was too stripped down. Although Kidman sparkles, the story line does not.

Had a lot of possibility, but was a mostly listless film.

PRINCESS GRACE is a bit too generic. This film tries to dispose of the fairy tale of marrying a prince by conveying a tumultuous year in the life of Grace Kelly and her husband Prince Ranier. It tries to juggle too many things, though, jumping from the war-looming political mood between Monaco and France to the sweet and quaint princess lessons in elocution and the like. It all adds up to diddly in the end. I can't appreciate something so bland and lifeless, royal or not. I can't recommend PRINCESS GRACE.
