Grace of Monaco
Yash Raj Films’ Hollywood production ‘Grace of Monaco’ opened the Cannes Film Festival 2014. The film stars Nicole Kidman. ApunKaChoice brings you the film’s trailer.
‘Grace of Monaco’ opened the 67th Cannes Film Festival in the Grand Theatre Lumiere of the Palais des Festivals, in the Official Selection category, out of competition. The movie tells the story of efforts by the late Princess Grace of Monaco (played by Nicole Kidman) to make peace between her adopted country and France. Grace, just 33 years old, and having just given up an acting career to become Monaco's First Lady, maneuvered through a political minefield to resolve the situation, as detailed in the film.
The film has been directed by French director Olivier Dahan of ‘La Vie en rose’ fame. ‘La Vie en rose’ is one of the only French cinema films ever to win two Oscars. Despite Dahan helming ‘Grace of Monaco’, the movie has been overwhelmingly bashed by film critics!
The Guardian critic Peter Bradshaw writes in his review: “It is a film so awe-inspiringly wooden that it is basically a fire-risk. The cringe-factor is ionospherically high. A fleet of ambulances may have to be stationed outside the Palais to take tuxed audiences to hospital afterwards to have their toes uncurled under general anaesthetic.”
Well, on the other hand, co-producer Uday Chopra posted an image on Twitter and wrote: “Grace Of Monaco gets a standing ovation at the Cannes Festival. Wish my father was there to see.”
