Is Spencer Worth Watching or Not?
Rather than being a biopic, the movie focuses on a certain time period in the life of Princess Diana. The event is none other than the Christmas celebrations, which are being held at Norfolk. It is here where she decides to end her troubled marriage with Prince Charles. After 24 years of Princess Diana’s death, her life events have been shown through various shows and movies. Many shows like Diana: The Musical and The Crown show that the Princess still occupies space in the public’s hearts.
Princess Diana arrived late to the palace as she was unable to find the way. She is greeted by an ex-military officer and then meets her children- Harry and William. She is well aware of the fact that Prince Charles has an extramarital affair. She started to have visions of Anne Boleyn, wife of Henry VIII. Anne was beheaded so that the king could marry his mistress. Maggie is Diana’s trusted staff, but then she is also taken away.
Kristen Stewart plays the role of a moody Diana, and her performance can be taken in various ways by the followers of the Princess. Sometimes both her accent and her actions miss the spot. In order to show Diana’s distressed state, Larrain had Jonny Greenwood to create the soundtracks. In all the movie is good and you can WATCH it.
