Grace of Monaco Film

The Grace of Monaco FilmFilming will soon begin on the film ‘Grace of Monaco’ charting the six-month period in 1962 when French leader Charles de Gaulle and Monaco's Prince Rainier III were at odds over the principality's standing as a tax haven.

Nicole Kidman is set to play the beautiful Princess and the local media have been on the lookout for extras and even for two children to play the roles of Caroline and Ranier III – the couple’s children.

With Grace a firm part of Monaco’s heritage and a film icon in her own right the producers will be hard pressed to do justice to her beauty and integrity. Having starred in the iconic film To Catch a Thief with Cary Grant – the story of a rich American who finds love in the most unlikely of places and with the most unlikely of men, she encapsulated the elegance of Riviera living in the 1950s.

Her story is the stuff of fairy tales, ultimately ending in tragedy with her untimely death on one of the serpentine roads surrounding the Principality of Monaco. The film will be directed by Olivier Dahan (who directed La Vie en Rose) and will be out in 2014.
