Behind the Scenes Featurette for Cannes Opener 'Grace of Monaco'
After debuting at the Cannes Film Festival last month, the delayed, once-hopeful awards contender Grace of Monaco will likely hit theaters sometime later this year. But if the reviews out of France are true, it likely won't be in the Oscar race. The film was once slated for a March release before being held for Cannes, and now we get a better look at the film starring Nicole Kidman and Tim Roth by way of a nearly 10-minute featurette that comes from Cannes. Kidman and Roth discuss the story and the real-life characters of Grace Kelly and Prince Rainier III, and we see plenty of footage from the film as well. Watch!
Here's the featurette for Olivier Dahan's Grace of Monaco from Film 4:
Olivier Dahan (La Vie en Rose) directs Grace of Monaco from a script by Arash Amel (who's writing the I Am Legend sequel). Nicole Kidman plays Grace Kelly in a story that follows the former Hollywood star's involvement with Monaco's Prince Rainier III and France's Charles De Gaulle dispute over tax laws in the early 1960s. Tim Roth plays the prince and the cast also includes Frank Langella, Paz Vega, Parker Posey and Milo Ventimiglia. The film premiered at the Cannes Film Festival in May after having an initial March release pulled by The Weinstein Company. A new release date has yet to be set in the United States. Stay tuned.
