When I heard the news that the next film by Chilean director Pablo Larraín was going to be a Lady Diana’s biopic, I wasn’t excited at all. It felt like Lady Di’s story had been told over and over again in movies and tv series, however, Larraín’s approach is not only a fresh take on Diana’s tragedy but also one of the freshest and best movies of the year.

Starring Kirsten Stewart, Spencer tells the story of Diana dealing with the peak of her frustration at the traditional Christmas holidays celebrations of the royal family. Larraín’s vision goes beyond telling the facts or his interpretation of the facts, he focuses his film on portraying the feeling of incarceration that could have led Diana to her break from the royal family.

The movie mixes facts with fantasy, creating a surreal psychological thriller that dives deep into the feelings and thoughts of this well-known character. Spencer will surely get some awards on this Award Season, including an Oscar nomination and perhaps even a win for Kirsten Stewart.

You can catch Spencer at selected theaters and pretty soon on VOD.
