Grace of Monaco with New Version at Cannes

Possible Differences Compared to US Cut

For quite some time, stories revolved around disagreements regarding the final cut of Grace of Monaco. After Harvey Weinstein already agreed to buy the US distribution rights to the film for $5 million, director Olivier Dahan changed the script drastically. The film shows the last years of the famous actress Grace Kelly (played by Nicole Kidman) who was the wife of the Prince of Monaco before she died in a tragic car accident. While Dahan's first version had a darker film in mind, Harvey Weinstein prefers a version that doesn't leave out the tragedy but dials down the extent of it for a normal audience, enabling an easier film experience instead of the heavier weighing drama Dahan offered to the viewers.

The film now has its premiere at Cannes and Deadline Hollywood reports that it seemingly is a compromise out of both angles. Critics weren't too impressed.

Deadline: The version being shown on opening night is said to be somewhere in between the original darker cut of director Olivier Dahan’s and the more accessible path reportedly preferred by Harvey Weinstein.

In the meantime, the US release is secured, as well, even though Weinstein has seemingly paid less. It remains to be seen whether the Cannes Cut will be the theatrical version in the US. Maybe it will have some other differences, as well.
