Written by Steven Knight and directed by Pablo Larrain, Spencer offers a new perspective on a story we may feel familiar with. Taking place over the Christmas break at Sandringham House in the winter of 1991, the film charts the breakdown of Prince Charles and Princess Diana’s marriage over the course of three days. Turning tabloid stories and media frenzy into a painful, very personal nightmare, Spencer captures the agony and torment of a woman entirely out of place in her surroundings.
The film shares themes with Jackie, Larrain’s critically acclaimed biopic of Jackie Kennedy from 2016. Following a high-profile world premiere at Venice, Spencer is hotly-tipped for major awards consideration, particularly for Kristen Stewart in the lead role as Diana.
