Grace Kelly (Nicole Kidman) was a beautiful Hollywood actress who was swept away and married the Prince of Monaco. This film really begins a half dozen years after she had become princess when she was facing a crisis about her life. Offered a role back in Hollywood at the same time a struggle and potential war with DeGaulle and France, Grace has to decide what her role will be. This biopic tells an interesting story of these years in Grace’s life.

Grace Kelly was a really beautiful young lady. Nicole Kidman took on a huge challenge taking on this role, and she probably did the very best she could. She got the look and feel down really well, but of course Grace was much younger than Nicole (who looks remarkable anyway), but though many critics are simply haters on Nicole, I think she did a good job. It was an interesting choice to cover this brief period in her life, rather than trying to do the entire “This is your life” thing. I think it was a good choice. Looking in depth at this period gave us a much better understanding of the person than trying to do the whole thing. It was an interesting period in the history of Monaco as it was in her life. She was struggling with what her role would be and which way her life should go. The script is well done, and the acting is as good as it could have been. I enjoyed this opportunity of learning more about this person, as I was very young when she got married and never really understood how the fairy tale life came to be. I have no unkind words for the actors, as I think they did a pretty good job. I recommend this film if you’re into biographical stories as I think it’s quite well done.
