How We Determine Our Grades

Many fictitious stories have been created from the idea of living in the public spotlight. In The Princes Diaries, an average American teenager discovers she descends from royalty and is asked to decide if she is willing to wear the crown. In the sequel, The Princess Diaries 2: Royal Engagement, the young princess must endure a very public courtship in order to fulfill the obligation of finding a new crowned prince. Tired of being in the royal fishbowl, a young princess (played by Audrey Hepburn) swims free of her publicity managers and takes a Roman Holiday. The film Paparazzi takes a look at the darker side of being hunted by celebrity hounds.
