The movie brings a bit of inside information about the Royal House and Diana’s Christmas holiday when she decided to end her marriage with Prince Charles. It’s a sometimes-surrealist descent into madness, showing the darker side of Diana’s story, about her mental issues and the struggle to be a part of the Royal family.
Here, there is only one tense. There is no future. The past and the present are the same thing.
It is slow-paced, but it makes up for it with beautiful scenery, good cinematography and excellent music. And Kristen Stewart, while still getting a ton of hate for her performances in the Twilight saga a decade ago, proves once again that she’s a good actress, and I found her just right for the role.
The movie could have been a bit more complex, but maybe that’s the screenwriter’s fault (Steven Knight - Locke, Serenity, Dirty Pretty Things)
