In our rundown of The 6 Most Unintentionally Hilarious Moments From Cannes Opener “Grace Of Monaco,” Jessica Kiang noted the appearance of Alfred Hitchcock, as played by Roger Ashton-Griffiths, as one of them. “He’s Hitchcock, see, so obviously he’ll never manage to get through a single sentence without shoehorning in a reference to one of his films, or some sort of life lesson delivered as an opaque nod to the craft of filmmaking,” she wrote and in this new clip from the movie, you can sorta see what she means.
International distributors Warner Bros. have dropped a handful of new scenes from the movie, and while critics were quite hard on the film, it doesn’t quite look a disaster (though it still doesn’t look very good other). We get a sequence between Kidman’s Grace Kelly and her (as our review describes it) “Catholic sensei” as played by Frank Langella. In another, a lunch time meal becomes icy between Kelly and her husband, Prince Rainier, played by Tim Roth.
Take a look at all of them below. “Grace Of Monaco” opens in the U.K. on June 6th but is still without a release date stateside.
