This new trailer for Olivier Dahan’s Grace of Monaco highlights the fact that not every princess who finds her prince lives happily ever after. The U.K. cut goes fairly deep into the complications that plague the life of Princess Grace Kelly (Nicole Kidman). Set six years after her wedding and departure from the Hollywood lights, Grace must reconcile a desire to return to the big screen while navigating a political minefield. The trailer gives rather more time to her own internal conflicts than the government-level threats, but it’s a solid introduction to the film at any rate.
Also starring Paz Vega, Tim Roth, Frank Langella, Parker Posey, Milo Ventimiglia, and Derek Jacobi, Grace of Monaco will premiere at the Cannes Film Festival this May. Hit the jump to watch the new U.K. trailer.

Set in 1962, six years after her celebrated Wedding of the Century, “Grace of Monaco” is an intimate snapshot of a year in the life of the twentieth century’s most iconic Princess – Grace Kelly – as she strived to reconcile her past and her present, a yearning for a return to the big screen with her newfound role as a mother of two, monarch of a European principality and wife to Prince Ranier III.
