The creative fascination with the late Princess Diana continues.\u00a0 With specials and series on television, musicals on stage and movies in theaters, creatives can\u2019t get enough of this magical woman who still captivates the world more than 25 years after her tragic death. Not since Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy Onassis has the mystique of celebrity so captured the show business imagination. But how much do we really know about her? And what else could have happened in her life to lead to her choices. With such lingering questions, it\u2019s no surprise that moviemaker Pablo Larrain \u2014 who took a similar look inside the grief Jackie experienced after JFK\u2019s assassination \u2014 would now focus on a pivotal weekend when Diana considers freeing herself from the confines of royal life and marriage to Prince Charles.\u00a0 Sustaining a sense of mystery around Diana\u2019s life challenges Larrain does this in different ways than when exploring Jackie\u2019s reactions. While the former first lady suffered in private, media fascination with Diana made sure we sensed every emotion. By the time the royal marriage ended, television audiences had viewed hours of Diana explaining her side of the story and, since her death, numerous projects have retold the story, most recently the popular series \u201cThe Crown.\u201d\u00a0 Rather than repeat what others offer, Larrain dares to rethink what could have happened inside Diana\u2019s head and heart as she struggles with questions of where she belongs. The filmmaker\u2019s choices work. Rather than recreate conversations Diana may have had with Charles, or the Queen, Larrain primarily focuses on the inner battles within the princess herself. This Christmas celebration in the country is less about possible confrontation between a troubled lady and people she cannot reach than it becomes a fascinating journey through the dimensions of emotional fragility. We may learn less about what actually occurred between a woman and others in her life than we experience a creative attempt to explain how this lady\u2019s life reached such a climactic corner. Making all of this work on screen is Kristen Stewart\u2019s dynamic portrayal of the complex Diana. While the actress captures the mannerisms and vocal qualities that detail a public image, this performance is far more than effective impersonation. Stewart reaches into the depths of her acting soul to reveal layers of fear that Diana faces, from her relationship with food to her loving exchanges with her children; from her resistance to discipline to her hunger for friendship. Stewart makes us believe we are seeing this character for the first time, leaving behind our memories of other performances. And, since the actress is on camera almost every moment, she sustains our interest in the performance, and the film, by continually injecting fresh interpretations. No matter if you follow every look at Diana, or if her story is new to you, \u201cSpencer\u201d will enlighten and entertain with deliberate surprise. \u201cSpencer\u201d runs 1 hours, 57 minutes, is rated \u201cR\u201d for \u201clanguage,\u201d and is showing in theaters.
