Neon just dropped the first trailer for Pablo Larrain’s much anticipated “Spencer” starring Kristen Stewart as Lady Diana and it looks absolutely sumptuous.
Diana reached a level of fame an intrigue that few other people on earth have experienced. Her ascendency to royalty and the resulting fallout from her divorce from Prince Charles caused an everlasting worldwide media sensation. Her tragic death at the age of 36 in 1997 as the result of a Paris traffic accident elicited sadness and mourning around the globe.
As for Larrain’s vision, the film will focus on Diana’s time during the Christmas holidays with the royal family at the Sandringham estate in Norfolk, England. It is during this period that she decides to leave her marriage to Prince Charles.
Expect an intimate, dramatic flick of similar character to that of 2016’s “Jackie,” the Jackie Kennedy biopic, which Larrain also directed.
“Spencer” will be given a wide theatrical release on Nov. 5. The trailer can be watched below.
