The Principality Of Monaco is already a bit techy about Grace Of Monaco, saying they don’t think it’s a proper true representation of a short part of Grace Kelly’s life, after she became wife to the leader of the small nation. But then, ever since Kelly retired from movies when she married, the royal family has been incredibly protective of her and her memory.
Now the first teaser trailer is here.
Here’s the synopsis: ‘The story of former Hollywood star Grace Kelly’s crisis of marriage and identity, during a political dispute between Monaco’s Prince Rainier III and France’s Charles De Gaulle, and a looming French invasion of Monaco in the early 1960s.’
The supposed invasion was when French President Charles de Gaulle handed Grace’s husband Crown Prince Rainier (Tim Roth) a six-month deadline to reform Monaco’s financial laws and status as an extreme tax haven. Monaco has said the film overstates the threat of an actual invasion, as well as Kelly’s involvement in it, but then, this is Hollywood – where Grace made her name – so what did they expect?
Frank Langella, Parker Posey, Milo Ventimiglia, and Paz Vega also star. It’s due in UK cinemas at the end of November.
Why no dialogue from Kidman in the trailer … not a good sign!
