While certain Oscar prognosticators have already called the awards season race over and given all the awards to "12 Years A Slave," there is still months to go and lots of pictures to come into play, and one that has been behind the curtain thus far is "Grace Of Monaco." Skipping the fall festival circuit, the latest effort from "La Vie En Rose" helmer Olivier Dahan tackles another historic figure, this time from the movie world, although in tale that has little to do with the action on set. And now we have our first look.

While certain Oscar prognosticators have already called the awards season race over and given all the awards to "12 Years A Slave," there is still months to go and lots of pictures to come into play, and one that has been behind the curtain thus far is "Grace Of Monaco." Skipping the fall festival circuit, the latest effort from "La Vie En Rose" helmer Olivier Dahan tackles another historic figure, this time from the movie world, although in tale that has little to do with the action on set. And now we have our first look.

Nicole Kidman leads the picture as Grace Kelly, with the 1962 set story detailing her involvement with dispute between Monaco's Prince Rainier III and France's Charles De Gaulle as the threat of invasion looms. And the teaser trailer doesn't offer up too much except a sense of elegance, good set design and Kidman looking fabulous in a various bunch of expensive looking outfits. Whether this just winds up as this year's "My Week With Marilyn" or something meatier, we'll have to see. But if it delivers on old school grace matched with good material, this could be a sleeper.

Co-starring Tim Roth, Paz Vega, Parker Posey, Frank Langella and Milo Ventimiglia"Grace Of Monaco" crowns your local theater starting on November 27th. [The Guardian]
