Monaco royalty angered by Grace Kelly film

Monaco royals call for boycott of biopic on Hollywood star-turned-princess.

    A movie showing at the Cannes film festival about actress turned royal, Grace Kelly, is attracting the anger of Monaco's royal family.

    The country's rulers have called the film a "farce" and have called for a boycott, but their indignation has not put off many Monacans who are eager to watch it.

    The controversy follows a spat between the movie's French director and American distributors, which resulted in two different versions being cut.

    Al Jazeera's Phil Lavelle reports from Monte Carlo.
