The actress will play a major role in the new movie «Spencer» directed by Pablo Larraine. The biography is dedicated to a certain, very turbulent period in the life of the Windsor family: the days when Princess Diana decided to divorce Prince Charles, thereby giving up the possible status of the future Queen. The whole film covers the events of only a few days, and the plot develops in one place – Sandringham Palace.
«Usually the prince appears out of nowhere, finds the princess, asks for her hand in marriage, and then she becomes queen», Larraine declared, – «And when someone gives up the title and says, «You know, I’d rather be on my own» – it’s an important and serious decision, a fairy tale upside down. I was always marveled at Diana’s decision and thought how hard it was to make it. That is the essence of the film».
Larraine has already filmed a movie about broken dreams and destroyed dynasties: his «Jackie» about the first lady of the United States Jacqueline Kennedy brought Natalie Portman a nomination for «Oscar» in 2017.
It is too early to say whether this project will be able to win the hearts of viewers and critics, but one thing is clear: the intrigues of Buckingham Palace are still stirring Hollywood.
