Grace of Monaco
You wait for ages for a tear-jerking biopic of a tragic princess, and then two come along at once. Princess of Monaco and ultimate Hitchcock blonde with a penchant for double entendres, Grace Kelly is played here by fellow icy blonde Nicole Kidman. The trailer is all classical music, expensive jewels, Riviera sunsets and dangerously winding roads. The film is directed by Olivier Dahan, whose ‘La Vie en Rose’ so poignantly portrayed another Gallic icon, Édith Piaf. But then again, not even Oliver Hirschbiegel’s experience with ‘Downfall’ could save ‘Diana’. Fingers crossed.
