The Cannes Film Festival opened this year with "Grace Of Monaco," and it didn't take long for the knives to come out. One of the more savaged films to open on the Croisette in recent years, reviews for the movie were dismal, with ours calling it "something of a disaster: rarely competent, unintentionally hilarious and borderline reprehensible in both its politics and its take on gender roles." In fact "Grace Of Monaco" was so egregious, we chronicled The 6 Most Unintentionally Hilarious Moments from the film. But today comes a different perspective.

Grace Of Monaco

The Cannes Film Festival opened this year with "Grace of Monaco," and it didn't take long for the knives to come out. One of the more savaged films to open on the Croisette in recent years, reviews for the movie were dismal, with ours calling it "something of a disaster: rarely competent, unintentionally hilarious and borderline reprehensible in both its politics and its take on gender roles." In fact "Grace of Monaco" was so egregious, we chronicled The 6 Most Unintentionally Hilarious Moments from the film. But today comes a different perspective.

A ten-minute featurette has been dropped online with the film's leads, Nicole Kidman and Tim Roth, and director Olivier Dahan, taking folks behind-the-scenes of the making of the movie. From Kidman discussing getting into the head of Grace Kelly and her psychology, to Dahan admitting he doesn't like the trappings of traditional biopics, it looks at the intentions of the project ... even if they didn't always manage to reach the aspirations it set out for. But at the very least, it's a look at the movie away from the buzz and hysteria that a festival brings with it.

No word yet on a U.S. release date but you can probably count this out as an Oscar contender.
