Critics tear apart Grace Kelly movie
The Grace Kelly melodrama Grace Of Monaco has kicked off the 67th annual Cannes Film Festival – but was promptly met with emphatic boos from critics.
The Hollywood Reporter called the film "a stiff, stagey, thunderingly earnest affair which has generated far more drama off screen than on".
The film stars Nicole Kidman as Kelly during her marriage to Prince Rainier III of Monaco.
Princess Stephanie of Monaco has criticised the film about her parents as inaccurate and has refused to see the movie, judging it by its script.
The film has also been hit by a feud between director Olivier Dahan and the distributors over the final cut.
Kidman described the circumstances as "awkward".
