Grace of Monaco has had some serious highs and lows, just like its central figure Grace Kelly. But as it approaches its world premiere at the illustrious Cannes Film Festival, the biopic about the movie star turned princess has finally unveiled a meaty trailer that gives a sense of its scale as well as its central drama. Penned by Erased scribe Arash Amel, Grace of Monaco focuses on what Grace Kelly's life was like after she left the spotlight and stardom of Hollywood and stepped into the politics of Monaco by marrying Prince Ranier III. The film picks up in 1962. Film roles in Alfred Hitchcock's Rear Window, Dial M for Murder and To Catch A Thief were long behind her. She and Ranier have been married for six years. But Kelly hasn't made a seamless transition from the mansions of Hollywood to castles of Monaco, and struggles to reconcile »
Grace of Monaco was originally going to be one of the Weinsteins’ year-end releases in 2013 (potentially snagging lead Nicole Kidman some awards season love in the process), but the prestigious biopic ended up being delayed until 2014; it’s currently without an official U.S. release date, but is set to serve as the opening night feature at the Cannes Film Festival this May.
Arash Amel’s (Erased) Grace of Monaco screenplay zeroes in on Lady Kelly’s life during the 1960s, when her marriage to Prince Rainier III (Tim Roth) came under heavy pressure, between her pondering a return to acting in Hollywood fare and – on the bigger playing field of global politics – the looming threat of a potential Monaco invasion, as the result of a dispute between Kelly’s husband and France’s president at the time, Charles De ...

Originally slated for release last year around awards season, The Weinstein Company decided to delay Grace of Monaco to a March release. However, the film was pulled from that release as well in favor of a premiere at the 2014 Cannes Film Festival this summer.

‘Grace of Monaco’ U.S. March release canceled as biopic starring Nicole Kidman as Grace Kelly to open 2014 Cannes Film Festival (photo: Nicole Kidman as Grace Kelly in ‘Grace of Monaco’) Directed by Olivier Dahan, and starring Nicole Kidman as Oscar-winning Hollywood actress-turned-European princess Grace Kelly, Grace of Monaco was to have been a (possibly) strong Oscar 2014 contender — at least in the Best Actress category. After all, Dahan had guided 2007 Best Actress Academy Award winner Marion Cotillard as Edith Piaf in La Vie en Rose; Nicole Kidman is a respected actress with one Academy Award win (for Stephen Daldry’s The Hours) and two nominations (Moulin Rouge!, Rabbit Hole); and, last but certainly not least, Grace of Monaco was to have been released in North America by the Oscar-savvy The Weinstein Company. However, Harvey Weinstein was reportedly unhappy with Olivier Dahan’s final cut, and demanded that Grace of Monaco be reedited. »

Nicole Kidman's Grace Kelly biopic Grace Of Monaco was originally set to arrive in cinemas in March, but no longer. Offered the prestigious chance to open this year's Cannes Film Festival, it's been pushed back so as not to ruffle any feathers in the south of France. Last year, The Great Gatsby broke tradition by opening in the U.S. before it opened in Cannes, and Her Grace isn't rocking the yacht.Producers The Weinstein Company and director Olivier Dahan were rumoured to have been sparring over the film, which originally featured on a sizzle reel shown to the press at last year's Festival with a view to a late November 2013 release. Now, however, they appear to have made up happily.As for the film itself, Grace Of Monaco is set between December 1961 and November 1962, when Grace Kelly (Kidman) maneuvered behind the scenes as Princess of Monaco to save her nation from political turmoil. »
