Watch Nicole Kidman as a very regal Grace Kelly in 'Grace of Monaco'

Finally, a glimpse of the statuesque Nicole Kidman playing the statuesque Grace Kelly. 


The first teaser for Grace of Monaco was released this week, and the Olivier Dahan-directed snapshot of Grace Kelly’s life as the Princess of Monaco looks royal indeed. 


Set to the classical Puccini song "O Mio Babbino Caro," the voice-over refers to Grace as the "fairytale," and warns that peace will come when she “embrace[s] the roles [she has] been destined to play.”



Herein lies the problem: Was this the role Grace truly desired? It is a role that swept all of the Hollywood actress’s other roles out of the picture and swept her across the sea to a country without peace. 


Quentin Tarantino-favourite Tim Roth takes on the role of Prince Rainier III, while Chosen’s Milo Ventimiglia plays Grace’s publicist, Rupert Allen.


In a haze of warm lighting, the teaser is high on style but limited in scope – we’ll have to wait and see what the La Vie En Rose director has in store. 


Grace of Monaco will hit theatres in December.
