Nicole Kidman - Grace of Monaco with Nicole Kidman Criticized by Monaco Royal Family

30 years since Grace Kelly's death marks a big milestone, and an exhibition in her memory is getting to open later on in the year. However, what's really hitting the headlines this week is the Monaco Royal family criticizing the Grace Kelly biopic, starring Nicole Kidman, deeming it 'pure fiction'.

Grace Kelly was married to Rainier III, Prince of Monaco from 1956 until her death in 1982. The film, called Grace of Monaco will cover her first few years in Monaco, an era which saw tension between France and Monaco, a situation in which Kelly played an important role in avoiding a coup. Much has already been said about the 45 year old Kidman meaning to play a 32 year old Kelly. 

"We have had absolutely no association with this project, which claims to be about the lives of our parents," the royal family, Prince Albert and his two sisters, said in a statement reports the Guardian. "For us, this film does not constitute a biographical work but portrays only a part of her life and has been pointlessly glamorised and contains important historical inaccuracies as well as scenes of pure fiction." 

In contrast, Kidman has, of course, praised the movie saying: "It reveals her great humanity but also her fears and frailties as she leaves her career behind." While its inaccuracies may be problematic for those who knew Grace Kelly personally, with La Vie En Rose's Olivier Daher at the helm, it's bound to be a beautiful watch.
