Opening the Cannes Film Festival this year will be the long awaited ‘Grace of Monaco’, starring Nicole Kidman as Grace Kelly who later became Princess Grace of Monaco.
The opening film is never “in competition” but will always receive masses of press and publicity and much attention for the stars who will arrive on the red carpet on 14th May.
It has been rumoured that the Monegasque royal family have distanced themselves from the film giving rise to speculation about the content of the movie. The circumstances of the death of Princess Grace have always been the source of discussion – she died in 1982 in a road accident when she lost control of her vehicle and crashed. Her daughter Stephanie was with her at the time and survived the crash.
Whatever the film reveals, this will of course be the opening of another glittering Film Festival in Cannes.
