The first favorite for this year’s Oscar for Best Actress has to be Kristen Stewart for her role as the late Princess Diana in Spencer. The film has garnered rave reviews at numerous film festivals – it’s currently 91% on Rotten Tomatoes – with most of the highest praise reserved for Stewart herself as a famous member of the British Royal Family.
After several teasers and first images, the full trailer for the film is here, which reveals that the film follows Diana on a major vacation weekend with the Queen. (The whole thing is also set to a sad cover of Lou Reed’s “Perfect Day.”) Watch it below:
Spencer was directed by Pablo Larrain, who achieved critical and commercial success a few years ago with Jackie, a similarly styled biopic about a famous woman in history – in this case, former first lady Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis. He therefore clearly has a niche that he has carved out for himself with these films. here is SpencerOfficial synopsis of:
The marriage of Princess Diana and Prince Charles has long since cooled off. Although rumors of business and divorce abound, peace is ordered for the Christmas festivities at Queen’s Sandringham Estate. There is eating and drinking, shooting and hunting. Diana knows the game. But this year things will be very different. SPENCER is an imagination of what could have happened during those fateful few days.
Spencer is scheduled to premiere in theaters on November 5.
