PABLO LARRAIN’S SPENCER, A REIMAGINING OF ONE FATEFUL CHRISTMAS WEEKEND IN THE LIFE OF DIANA, PRINCESS OF WALES.
Kristen Stewart is utterly transformed as Princess Diana, in one of her best performances to date. It’s 1991 and Diana’s marriage to Prince Charles has crumbled. His mistress Camilla Parker-Bowles has joined the Royal family holiday weekend at Sandringham Estate, sending the psychologically vulnerable Diana into a tailspin. Based on two years of research including interviews with Diana’s private staff, Pablo Larrain’s haunting portrait of a woman in crisis, details how her cries for help were cruelly ignored. What She Said’ Anne Brodie spoke with Larrain.
