The marriage of Princess Diana (Kristen Stewart) and Prince Charles (Jack Farthing) has long since grown cold. Though rumors of affairs and a divorce abound, peace is ordained for the Christmas festivities at the Queen's (Stella Gonet)'s Sandringham Estate. There's eating and drinking, shooting and hunting. Diana knows the game. But this year, things will be profoundly different. 'Spencer' is an imagining of what might have happened during those few fateful days.

Interesting Royal Drama - Spencer review by GI

Spoiler Alert
16/11/2021

Kristen Stewart is note perfect as Princess Diana in this imagined story of a royal Christmas weekend at Sandringham. She portrays the fragility of Diana as her marriage has collapsed and her increased feelings of being trapped in a world she cannot escape. Not only has Stewart caught Diana's mannerisms and accent but as a performance of a woman descending further into mental torment she is revelatory. The royal family are painted as preposterous as they no doubt are showing bizarre traditions such as being weighed on arrival but they are kept mostly in the background here as the film focuses on Diana's mental decline and some touching scenes with her two children. The atmosphere is one of gothic claustrophobia with long, cold corridors and a creepy Major Gregory (Timothy Spall) who is head of the staff ever present. Not all of the film works especially some of the visions that Diana is depicted as having but the analogy of her with Anne Boleyn is apt and interesting. Sean Harris and Sally Hawkins as friendly servants but who are also part of the royal machine are both very good. An interesting film, well told and surprisingly clever and certainly better than the awful Diana (2013) and knowing the royal family will hate it makes it well worthwhile.
