The Grace Kelly melodrama "Grace of Monaco" kicked off the 67th annual Cannes Film Festival on Wednesday with classic French Riviera glamour, behind-the-scenes controversy and non-approval from the Monaco Royal Family who claims the movie to be " inaccurate". Kidman plays the movie star during her marriage to Prince Rainier III of Monaco, just an hour's drive from Cannes.

"I feel sad because I think the film has no malice toward the family," said Kidman. "You take dramatic license at times, but I understand also because it's their mother and father."
The Cannes Film Festival is the world's largest and most starry film festival, as well as the top movie marketplace where countless films are bought and sold. While it encompasses a broad range of movie premieres, wheeling and dealing and celebrity gatherings, the world's attention is focused on the 18 films in competition for the Palme d'Or.
Both stunning: Nicole Kidman and Grace de Monaco both exude class and sophistication.
