Spencer is another film production on the life of Princess Diana and the British royal family, and at the same time another (after Jackie) portrait of a woman in an extreme situation directed by Pablo Larraín.
The marriage of Princess Diana and Prince Charles has long grown cold. There are rumours of their affairs and possible divorce. However, Christmas at the royal estate of Sandringham in Norfolk is expected to bring peace and decrease tensions. Holiday rituals, sumptuous meals, dazzling costumes and traditional pheasant hunts are all tried and tested means of silencing conflicts. Diana knows this game well. This year, however, things are about to take a completely different turn...
The film was acclaimed at the Venice International Film Festival and Kristen Stewart's extraordinary performance as Princess Diana delighted critics and took her to the top of the Oscar ranking.
