Review

Our Score
Grace Kelly's road to success owed as much to naked ambition and grim determination as sheer talent, and was anything but the fairy tale Hollywood publicists painted it. There's much that this TV movie glosses over, particularly with regard to her love life, but director Anthony Page successfully conveys the pressures placed on Kelly by her privileged background and her international fame. Cheryl Ladd may lack the poise of the actress who won an Oscar for her performance in The Country Girl, but she's more convincing than Ian McShane as Prince Rainier of Monaco.

Summary

Biopic of the Hollywood legend, beginning with her teenage years, examining her stormy relationship with her overbearing millionaire father, through to her success as a movie star and culminating in her marriage to Prince Rainier of Monaco, for whom she sacrificed her glittering career. Starring Cheryl Ladd, Lloyd Bridges, Diane Ladd and Alejandro Rey.
