Nicole Kidman’s Royal Comeback

By  May 15, 2013

Nicole Kidman is having a very good week! After inking a deal to star in Jimmy Choo’s fall campaign, we’re now getting a look at some of the first shots from her upcoming biopic, Grace of Monaco.

The Hollywood Reporter had exclusive access to the first images of the film, which chronicles the life of Hollywood starlet turned real life princess, Grace Kelly. Directed by Olivier Dahan, the film delves deep into the time period but steps away from the lookalike approach. This style is quite similar to Dahan’s Oscar winning La Vie En Rose and the casting choice of Marion Cotillard. “I’m not trying to re-create Grace, just capture her essence,” she explained to the publication last year during filming. “This is more of an art movie than a strict biopic.”

The film was originally meant to debut at the Cannes Film Festival, but we’ll have to wait for the holidays when it hits theaters on December 27th.
