A biopic imitation of how Princess Diana (Kirsten Stewart) decided to terminate her wedding vows to Prince Charles (Jack Farthing) due to the coldness of the union for a while now and his affair with Camilla Parker Bowles.
During her Christmas holiday with the royal family struggling with a mental breakdown, Princess Diana decides to end her long cold marriage and also the royal family taking along her children to live an independent life.
Dragged opening scene
It’s amazing how stories of the royal family tend to draw people towards their direction and Princess Diana and Prince Charlie’s story cannot be left out. Pablo Larrain has tried in his best way to come up with an amazing plot here revealing how Princess Diana decides to end her marriage to Prince Charles due to the fact that the marriage has long been cold and she wasn’t getting the kind of treatment she deserved from the royal family.
The fashion sense in this movie was overwhelming though revealing but fit for the purpose with great up-close visuals that convey the claustrophobia Princess Diana felt from both the public and the royal household.
The music score was great and goes along with the smooth visuals not leaving out the sweet camera works.
Though the pace seemed slow and dragged at the beginning but got a lot better towards the mid scene with Diana’s collision with the royal family.
Going through the movie you’ll not fail to see the lacking plot with the overlook of Princess Diana’s contribution to the society during her last few days instead it portrayed her as a sadist, a mentally unstable weak woman who even cared less for her children, making the story focus more on her weakness than her strength.
Making a character out of a historical icon like Princess Diana, there should be more to their story and also intriguing qualities than a mere 3 to 4 days story revealing only her weak days. The hallucinations of the former Queen Anne Boleyn to point to her relation to Diana was quite fascinating and intriguing.
Kirsten Stewart as Princess Diana feels like a reincarnation instead of an imitation as she keeps you captured right from her facial expressions to her gestures and down to her head tilts though her British assent didn’t sound natural. Sally Hawkins as Diana’s trusted royal dresser was portrayed beautifully well. Jack Farthing as Prince Charles was good also as well as the performance of other characters.
In conclusion, ‘Spencer’ might not be a perfect story but it is a fascinating and an amazing story with great performance and wonderful technical unit. Highly recommended.
Bottom line: one sided story
