The royal family of Monaco has taken issue with a film that negatively portrays the marriage between Princess Grace and Prince Rainier. Grace of Monaco, starring Nicole Kidman, portrays the princess as so unhappy in her loveless and possibly abusive marriage that she tries to leave her husband and resume her Hollywood acting career. The couple’s children recently denounced the film as “needlessly glamorized” and riddled with “major historical inaccuracies and a series of purely fictional scenes.” But one Kelly biographer defended the film, calling it “a very slim slice of Grace’s life and it is nowhere near as negative as it could be.”
