The Weinstein Company has released the first trailer for Grace of Monaco. The film takes place between December 1961 and November 1962, when Grace Kelly (Nicole Kidman) maneuvered behind the scenes as Princess of Monaco to save her nation from political turmoil. The trailer treats Kelly like some shining beacon of wealth and nobility that came down to shower us mere mortals with her presence. But this is Oscar season, and that’s when stuff like this starts creeping in to get Academy voters to remember the importance of famous people playing other famous people.
Hit the jump to check out the trailer. The film also stars Paz Vega, Tim Roth, Frank Langella, Parker Posey, Milo Ventimiglia, and Derek Jacobi. Grace of Monaco opens December 27th.
