Grace of Monaco Starring Nicole Kidman Will Premiere on Lifetime Next Month
After the much buzzed about Grace of Monaco opened the Cannes Film Festival last year, we've been waiting with baited breath for the film to announce a release date---and now we can finally mark our calendars. The biopic starring Nicole Kidman as Grace Kelly has found a home on the silver screen (production conflicts kept the movie from making it to theaters), and it will premiere May 25 on Lifetime.
The film is set in 1962---six years after Kelly's "Wedding of the Century"---and portrays a year in the life of the princess as she attempts to reconcile her acting career with her roles as a mother, monarch of a European principality, and wife to Prince Ranier III. The film also stars Tim Roth, Frank Langella, Parker Posey, Milo Ventimiglia, Derek Jacobi, and Paz Vega.
While Kidman admitted that playing Kelly was a daunting task, the actress was up for the challenge: "I always try to push through fear," she previously told InStyle. "People always say, ‘Oh, you take such risks,’ or ‘You’re brave.’ And I’m like, ‘Well, if you only knew—inside I’m really frightened!'"
Tune in to Grace of Monaco when it debuts May 25 at 8 p.m. ET on Lifetime.
