Grace of Monaco to Open 2014 Cannes Film Festival
I will do a rundown of the Oscar contenders emerging out of Sundance. But another major contender which got pushed to 2014 due to some controversy has just had the last laugh. After a dispute with Weinstein over edits to Grace of Monaco, director Olivier Dahan and his team just landed the opening slot at the Cannes Film Festival on May 14th. It will release in France that same day, although it will be interesting to see how or when it actually lands in the United States. Early word has been interesting to say the least, but has been overshadowed by its release drama. As of May 14th, we will finally see how the film turned out, and whether it will be an Oscar contender in 2015.
