You wait for ages for a tear-jerking biopic of a tragic princess, and then two come along at once – although Grace of Monaco has been delayed a while now amid release-date changes and stories of conflict between director Olivier Dahan and producer Harvey Weinstein. We’re hoping that it will be better liked than Diana though. Here, Grace Kelly – Princess of Monaco and ultimate Hitchcock blonde – is played 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 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.
