Director: Olivier Dahan
Starring: Nicole Kidman, Tim Roth

Grace Of Monaco is set in 1962 and showcases 12 months in the life of iconic princess Grace Kelly, 6 years after she married Prince Rainier of Monaco in the 'wedding of the century'. The film highlights her yearning to return to the silver screen, when Alfred Hitchcock offers her the leading role in his latest film Marnie. However, her newfound role as mother of two, monarch of a European principality and wife to Prince Rainier III makes this desperate need unattainable.

Exquisitely filmed in the mesmerising surrounds of Monaco, this film unfortunately flounders and is a huge disappointment owing to the many problematic elements within the production. Nicole Kidman bears no resemblance to Princess Grace Kelly and fails to bring the character to life, thus failing to capture the audience's attention and imagination.

The story is captivating upon Alfred Hitchcocks introduction into the film, but interest quickly wavers when the screenplay seems to become over-saturated with all the political upheavals that were occurring. The screenplay should have spanned her entire life, adding more dimensions to the film. Only a brief scene where the princess drove her car erratically hinted at her eventual demise.

The artistic close-ups of Nicole Kidmans lips, nose, eyes and other facial features as the camera meandered around her face on many occasions throughout the film, were ineffective and nonsensical, seemingly mocking rather than enhancing the scenes. Grace Of Monaco's greatest set back is that it moved at an excruciatingly slow pace, only succeeding at accelerating audience restlessness and disinterest.
