Although the movie "Grace of Monaco" has been chosen to open this year's Cannes Film Festival it is not in the competition. The movie is set in the 1960s and focuses on the Grace Kelly's early years as a princess. The movie shows that side of story of Grace's life when she was tempted to return to Hollywood by an offer from Alfred Hitchcock.
Tim Roth plays her husband, Prince Rainier III and Robert Lindsay, Spain's Paz Vega and Sir Derek Jacobi are other cast members. However critics have been quick to slam the movie with not so good reviews.
Movie critic Robbie Collin from The Telegraph has just given one star to the movie and called it "silly."
"Nicole Kidman plays Grace Kelly in the fantastically silly Cannes Film Festival 2014 opener Grace of Monaco, says Robbie Collin," writes Collin in his review.
"Kidman is a terrifically talented actress, but this is a role built on naivety: one of the few things she can't convincingly express," he added.
"It's an easy watch, lush, stylish... and is often side-splittingly funny. The trouble is, it's not actually meant to be a comedy," writes another movie critic Damon Wise from empireonline.com .
