Olivier Dahan’s Grace Kelly biopic, Grace Of Monaco, is going straight to TV after opening to such sour reviews at the Cannes Film Festival last May.

The film stars Nicole Kidman as the Philadelphia-born-and-raised Grace. It’s set in 1962—six years after she was married to Prince Rainier III of Monaco—when princess life starts to dull and she’s hankering to to be a movie star again. Kidman stars alongside Frank Langella, Parker Posey, Paz Vega and Tim Roth, who plays Rainier III.

You can catch it on Monday, May 25th, when it airs on Lifetime at 8 pm. Check out the trailer below, but be warned: The royal family of Monaco panned that, too, saying it “appears to be a farce and confirms the totally fictional nature of this film.”
