Nicole Kidman's 'Grace of Monaco' Full Trailer Shows Princess' Identity Crisis
he video teases the rocky marriage of Grace Kelly and the Prince of Monaco as the actress is yearning to return to Hollywood.
"Grace of Monaco" gets its first full trailer. It shows Nicole Kidman
playing Grace Kelly who is portrayed in the film having an identity
crisis. The actress-turned-princess is struggling to embrace her new
life as royalty. Her desire to return to Hollywood is met with resistance from her husband.
"Some of you ask, why did I leave Hollywood," Nicole says in a voiceover in the beginning
of the trailer. "Well, I left because I fell in love with a charming
prince." But six years after celebrating Wedding of the Century, their
marriage gets rocky as she strives to reconcile her past and her
"I don't know how I'm going to spend the rest of my life in this place
where I can't be me. And who is that?" she says in frustration.
"Everything I do or say is wrong."
Directed by Olivier Dahan, the movie is set in the 1960s when Monaco was
under the looming threat of French invasion led by Charles De Gaulle
due to tax dispute. The story will take place after Kelly abandoned her
Hollywood career to settle into her new role as a princess.
It was criticized by the royal House of Grimaldi due to its "major
historical inaccuracies." In his defense, Dahan said the film was not a
biopic. Kidman agreed, saying that they only took on the small part of
the princess' life "when she reveals her great humanity as her fears and
Kidman stars opposite Tim Roth
who plays her on-screen husband, Prince Rainier III. The film was
originally scheduled to come out last year, but it got delayed. It is
now set as an opener at Cannes Film Festival and will arrive in the U.K.
on June 6.
