Classic ’80s fashions. Massive hair flicks. Brittle British Royals who all look like horses. And, in the centre, Kristen Stewart as People’s Princess, Lady Diana Spencer. (She was always Diana Spencer.)
Yes after the Spencer teaser poster release comes the teaser trailer, and it’s mesmerising.
Here’s the synopsis:
The marriage of Princess Diana and Prince Charles has long since grown cold. Though rumours of affairs and a divorce abound, peace is ordained for the Christmas festivities at the Queen’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.
Spencer is directed by Pablo Larraín from a screenplay by Steven Knight. Co-starring with Stewart are Jack Farthing (Prince Charles!), Sally Hawkins, Timothy Spall and Sean Harris. Oh yes and Amy Manson as…. Anne Boleyn?!
Spencer is is released in UK and US cinemas on 5 November so expect fireworks (BOOM, BOOM) — though it’s having its world premiere at Venice Film Festival on 3 September and has a special screening at Toronto International Film Festival on 15 September.
