MOVIE REVIEW: I watched “Grace of Monaco” yesterday (2015, Nicole Kidman). I visited Monaco when I was 11 and saw Prince Renier drive by once, so I was excited to learn more about them. I really enjoyed the story, performances, costumes, and sets, but when I went to rate it at Netflix, I took time to read the top review, which I hadn’t done before. The STORY is total fiction! Argh!!!! I have enough trouble separating reality from all the fake news that’s around. A historical drama that purports to be “based on real events” that ISN’T BASED ON REAL EVENTS (just on real characters) just makes me mad. I gave it 2 stars instead of 1 only because Kidman is GORGEOUS as the lovely Grace Kelly and the clothes are absolutely yummy. But I honestly wish I’d never seen it. :0/
TISSUE ALERT and LOL: This groom is so blessed to have a father-in-law like this!
