Full 'Grace of Monaco' Trailer Is the Melodrama Supercut

The Grace of Monaco teaser trailer--with its warm, glowing lighting, narration, and glamorous shots of Nicole Kidman--made the film feel less like a drama than an expensive perfume commercial. This full-length follow-up trailer, like Grace Kelly herself, veers quite harshly in the other direction. All the elegance is still there, but all the opulent hollowness is now brimming with melodrama and Kidman's endless tears. And because it's based on a true story, there's not even a sassy, overweight old woman to diffuse all these histrionic outbursts. There's just Frank Langella, and he's not making anyone feel better about anything.
