Grace Kelly was an actress who married into royalty and is therefore exactly the role model some scary parents would want for their daughters. She became a go-to example of great beauty and decorum in the late 20th Century. Of course, she was also a woman, with an inner life that, to be honest, I don’t know even the tiniest thing about.
This trailer paddles around in the beauty and opulence but doesn’t even hint at the personality behind the super-expensive facade. Hopefully the film will. Hopefully this will give Nicole Kidman a chance to play the Princess Grace as a human being and not a well-painted portrait in a gold frame.
I haven’t liked a single film from director Olivier Dahan before now but this time, at least, he’s working for a well-liked screenplay.
