67th Cannes Film Festival
Cannes Film Festival is one of the most revered platforms for showcasing a film’s potential to a global audience. Every year, amidst flamboyantly decked up celebrities, several films from different countries vie for the attention of audience and their appreciation. The 67th Cannes Film Festival would be no different. This year’s event would be beginning with Nicole Kidman’s ‘Grace of Monaco’. This movie, in which Nicole Kidman plays the biopic role of the Grace Kelly, is concentrated in the time period of the marriage of Grace Kelly with Prince Rainier III of Monaco.
Shot across the mesmerising and eye soothing regions of the French Riviera, Nicole Kidman’s ‘Grace of Monaco’ has been found in several controversies until now. One of the most conspicuous one being the one involving the director of this opening movie of 67th Cannes Film Festival, Olivier Dahun with Weinstein & Co. Weinstein & Company would be distributing this biopic in the region of North America. The point of contention is the final cut for the movie.
The 67th Cannes Film Festival would be showcasing the edition of the director, Olivier Dahun. It is not only these controversies; but Nicole Kidman’s ‘Grace of Monaco’ has also be been criticized severely by the Royal family of Monaco, which is nearly just an hour’s drive from Cannes. The jury which decides for the winner of Palme d’Or award is headed by Jane Champions, who had earlier become the only woman to win the this highly coveted award for her movie ‘The Piano’ in the year 1993.
Nicole Kidman’s ‘Grace of Monaco’ would be trying to repeat the achievements of the erotic French movie about coming of age tale titled, ‘Blue is the Warmest Colour’. Michel Hazanavicius, who became an overnight star when ‘The Artist’ had hit all the right buttons during its year of presentation in the film festival, would also be back in the 67th Cannes Film Festival trying to repeat his achievement. Twilight movie co-stars, Robert Pattinson and Kirsten Stewart would be competing with their respective movies, namely, ‘Maps to the Stars’ and ‘Clouds of Sils Maria’.
