That cast list certainly gives an idea of what sort of plot elements they'll be focusing upon.

Any idea what the story line for these movies will be? Based on any biographies? Fact or fiction?

You, Sir, are no Harry Potter fan.
Geraldine played Lily Potter in the films. My favourite role of hers though was that of Lady Emily Lennox in the 6-part drama "Aristocrats".

As Artemisia mentioned she played one of the famous Lennox sisters in "Aristocrats".

She was also wonderful when she was cast as Daphne Du Maurier in "Daphne".

She was such a lovely aristocrat in "Aristocrats" yet was such a snobbish one in Julian Fellowes ill-fated "Titanic" drama series last year.

Nicole Kidman gets back in character on the Grace Of Monaco set | Mail Online

Cast List -
Prince Rainier - Tim Roth
Princess Antoinette - Geraldine Sommerville
Count Fernando D'Aillieres - Derek Jacobi
Aristotle Onassis - Robert Lindsay
Madge Tivey-Faucon - Parker Posey
Father Francis Tucker - Frank Langella
Maria Callas - Paz Vegas

Nicole looks good, but I still think an unknown actress should have been chosen for the part.

I'm struggling with Tim Roth as Rainier. I think the production values of the film should overcome any issues with the casting, those lavish costumes and location shootings should ensure it is easy on the eye,

I agree with you about Tim Roth (only based on physical looks). The rest of the cast is fine, IMO. Waiting to see the movie.

Yes I agree too,he wouldn't have been my choice either,as the movie is scheduled for release sometime in 2014 we have a bit of a wait on our hands!

Monaco royal family says 'Grace of Monaco' film inaccurate, too glamorous
Quote:
Monaco's royal family has criticized a feature film about the late Princess Grace, saying it presents a glamorized and inaccurate view of her life. Prince Albert and his sisters, Princess Stephanie and Princess Caroline, issued a statement saying the film about their mother — the former Grace Kelly — contained major historical inaccuracies and "purely fictional scenes."

Maybe I'm hoping for too much

Producers admit the film is fiction and was never intended to tell the true story.
"
The film's producer, Pierre-Ange Le Pogam, told AFP the production was meant to be a work of fiction.
"The palace was aware of the script and made requests for changes. We took most of their remarks into account, but not all," he said.
"The film is not intended to tell the true story of the principality," he added"

The storyline of 'Grace of Monaco' is very narrowly focussed. It centres on a six-month period in 1962 when Monaco was in a heated tax dispute with France.

Interestingly, Nicole Kidman's Australian representative, Wendy Day, was quoted in yesterday's Sydney Morning Herald as stating "it was not clear if the film was meant to be biographical or interpretive." Hmm...

Well since the producer now says the film is a work of fiction and not meant to tell the true story I guess we can lean more towards the "interpretive" than the biographical side of things.

I'm not sure the Windsor's and Grimaldi's are impressed with the movies that's been made about The late Princesses of Wales & Monaco.
