Preview: Grace Of Monaco (PG)
PUBLISHED: 09:15 06 June 2014
ELEGANCE, beauty and huge amounts of money – it could only be the playground for the rich and famous, Monte Carlo.
Nicole Kidman takes the title role as Grace Kelly as she leaves the bright lights of America for the Mediterranean principality, aged 26, to marry Prince Rainier III (Tim Roth).
While she may have been forgiven for thinking she had left drama behind, Grace finds herself embroiled in a heated political situation as tensions hot up between France and Monaco.
Grace yearns to return back across the Atlantic Ocean and team up with the legendary Alfred Hitchcock (Roger Ashton-Griffiths) but the infighting plunges her into a big moral dilemma. Does she pursue her dreams or stay and remain a doting mother and wife?
The film was launched at this year’s Cannes Festival but has not received the best reviews.
