The first teaser has been released for Grace of Monaco, the new biopic of Grace Kelly starring Nicole Kidman. Directed by Olivier Dahan, who directed Marion Cotillard to her Best Actress Oscar win in La vie en rose, the film certainly looks good. It’s a stylish, albeit self-important marketing piece; classical music, an earnest voice over and gorgeous cinematography. Yeah, we’ll see.

Synopsis underneath the teaser.

Synopsis:

Grace of Monaco is focused on the personal story of former Hollywood star Grace Kelly during a dispute between Monaco’s Prince Rainier III, and France’s Charles De Gaulle over tax laws in the early 1960s. Nicole Kidman stars as Grace Kelly with Tim Roth as Prince Rainier III. The film is directed by Olivier Dahan (La Vie En Rose).

Cinemablend gave a clearer synopsis:

Grace of Monaco takes place after Kelly’s acting career, when she is serving as the Princess of Monaco and working behind the scenes to avert a potential war between France and her tiny country.
