Initially when I found out that a bio movie about Grace Kelly was in the works, I was excited. When I found out Nicole Kidman was to play Grace, I was a little disappointed.
Don't get me wrong, I love Nicole! She's an amazing actress.. But when it comes to casting someone to play someone like Grace Kelly.. You gotta get it right. You HAVE to be on point..
I'd give the casting choices a 6 out of 10 for the whole cast.
Nicole was a good choice... But you know what have been a wayyyyy better choice. Nicole Kidman, 10 years ago.
Even though it was the late 1960s and obviously Grace was older I feel that Nicole would have been a great fit BEFORE the Botox and fillers.
The movie was pretty bland and nothing major happened.. It basically just showcased Nicole's talents and gave a small glimpse into those years of Graces life buts that's it. The storyline was just not very riveting. I mainly kept watching because of the pretty outfits.. 8 out of 10 for outfits! They were pretty accurate and some of them were just gorgeous.
I wish they had made a movie of her life BEFORE she became a princess... Grace in Hollywood would have been a juicier script.
Heres the trailer if you wanna have a look:
Coming from a family who never thought she was good enough (they did address it in 'Grace of Monaco' with ONE phone call with her mother and a quick convo, that's it.) to the silver screen, the dilemmas with Hitchcock falling in love with her, then Gravr falling in love with a prince and becoming real princess! And end with a literal 'fairytale ending'... That would have been cute!
Oh well, maybe they'll make another (better) one in the future.
Just keep trying over and over and over again like they do with Marilyn Monroe bio films...
(That takes us to the next topic I'll be addressing for the next blog about ALLLLLLL the Different Marilyn bios and which majorly suck ass, and are full of crap to the other ones who have some truth to them)
