Cast:- Nicole Kidman ,Frank Langella, Parker Posey,Derek Jacobi, Paz Vega, Roger Ashton-Griffiths, Milo Ventimiglia, and Tim Roth.
Claps for: - Delivering a biopic in an interesting way and nailing Grace Kelly.
Slaps for: - A shorter version of the movie would have been apt.
Plot: - The movie is tilted towards the feminist verge, depicting the story of Grace Kelly, a former Oscar winning actress, who abandoned her successful movie career after marrying the Prince of Monaco. The biopic is a six-month episodic of 1962 when French leader Charles de Gaulle and Monaco's Prince's impasse over taxation was resolved by the cast of Kelly's influence.
The movie follows the format of My Week with Marilyn and The King's Speech, both of which shed light on lives of famous figures.
Combo on offer:- While Kidman is immaculate at working Kelly, personifying her cleverness at the same time being dainty yet not afraid to speak her mind; even her wardrobe is a replica of the princess and captures the 90's fashion sense. The movie takes into consideration details like the mere height-difference between Kelly and Rainer. It enlightens the sacrifices and agonies of being a royalty as well give an insight into the tribulations of a newbie princess struggling to winning over her locals. While the movie amplifies Grace's persona from a Princess to Monaco's knight in shining armor it shuns the role of Prince Rainier III, in Monaco and pictures him as an ill-tempered leader unaware of his audience.
Our verdict: - Grace of Monaco is a fine tribute and honor to Grace Kelly. I would give #Claps for the movie, specially to Nicole Kidman.
