“Spencer” in 10 frames 

Giulia Guido

A fable from a true tragedy”, is how “Spencer” the 2021 film directed by Pablo Larraín and written by Steven Knight that tells how Lady Diana might have arrived at her decision to divorce Prince Charles, opens. It could, because the film is a fictional tale covering a three-day period: 1991’s Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, and Boxing Day. 

With the marriage now at an end, Lady D, played by Kirsten Stewart, is forced to spend the Christmas season at the royal estate at Sandringham, under the gaze of family and service staff. 

The narrative here does not need many lines or dialogue; the mood of the People’s Princess comes through Stewart’s gaze and, most importantly, through the dim light that struggles to get through the thick curtains and the huge empty rooms of the palace. 

We have selected 10 frames that are a real treat for the eyes.
