The new trailer for Spencer highlights Kristen Stewart’s performance as Princess Diana, which is already receiving praise in film festival circuits.
Kristen Stewart shines as Princess Diana in the new trailer for Spencer. Spencer is helmed by director Pablo Larraín, who previously directed another powerhouse performance in a true story with Natalie Portman in 2016’s Jackie. The film was written by Steven Knight, who has penned scripts for several films, including Robert Zemeckis’ Allied and David Cronenberg’s Eastern Promises. Stewart is also sharing the screen with a talented group of actors, including Sally Hawkins, Timothy Spall, Jack Farthing, and Sean Harris.
The Spencer trailer, which was shared by Elevation Pictures on YouTube, gives an excellent glimpse at Stewart’s turn as Princess Diana, where she captures not only the look but also the voice. The film centers on the emotional Christmas holiday at Sandringham estate in Norfolk, England, where Princess Diana makes the decision to end her cold marriage with Prince Charles following rumors of infidelity, a decision that ultimately speaks to the title of the film as Spencer was Princess Diana’s maiden name.
