Set in 1962, six years after the celebrated marriage between the Hollywood star and the Prince of Monaco, the film unravels the events that threatened their marriage.
Kidman plays a poised Princess of Monaco, who soon becomes tired of her royal life and wishes to return to star in Hitchcock’s latest film.
But she has to fight against the wishes of her husband, Prince Rainier II of Monaco (Tim Roth), who would prefer her to stay in the city-state.
The film, which was due be released at the end of November last year, was re-scheduled for a January 2014 release, and has now been confirmed to open Cannes 2014.
With beautiful Sixties clothes, the set and costumes look like an indulgent feast.
But the level of melodrama in the trailer suggests it could be as poorly acclaimed as last year’s much-anticipated, much-delayed film The Great Gatsby.
