Trivia

When the camera first pans into Diana's hotel room, at the very beginning of the movie, a wine glass is seen on a dinner table. This is an exact replica of the real glass used at the dinner where Dodi Fayed proposed to Diana at the Paris Imperial Hotel, minutes before their deaths. Dodi's father, Mohamed Al Fayed, had the wine glass preserved in an acrylic pyramid and now is displayed, as a memorial shrine, at Harrod's in London, England. See more »

Goofs

When Diana is flying a private jet there's a scene filmed from outside the plane and we can see it's a Embraer Legacy 450 with Tail Registration number PT-TNN. That aircraft did not exist at 1997 and the registration number if for a Brazilian aircraft. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Reporter: It is not the horror of landmines that is making the headlines back home, but reports of the Princess's romance with Dodi Fayed. Speculation fueled by the arrival last night of a car similar to that owned by the Princess.

Intimate and touching
28 November 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The last few years of Diana's tragic life post separation and divorce is depicted in this biopic. It is fascinating, voyeuristic and quite moving.

Good points: Naomi Watts acts well. She has a satisfactory Diana accent and good imitations of her facial expressions. She captured Diana's essence despite being much more petite in build and having more delicate facial features than Diana. Good effort to recreate famous photographic moments and wardrobe and clothes. Physical resemblance isn't a must. After all Helen Mirren doesn't look like the Queen but she still won an Oscar. So Naomi's portrayal should be nominated at least.

The story highlights Diana's efforts in the campaign against land mines. And it gives her life a meaningful legacy. The hounding of the press and photographers, and her intimate daily life are fascinating to watch. Also the tragedy of her personal isolation and quest for happiness are very moving.

There are some faults. The balance of the screenplay was off when it came to her romantic life. Other TV biopics have shown the disintegration of her marriage but not so much the later relationships. However in this movie too much was spent on the affair with Dr Hasnat Khan. Naveen Andrews wasn't dignified enough for the role of a specialist doctor. He seemed crude and coarse. Quite disturbing to see her in his squalid flat. More screen time on the relationship with Dodi Al Fayed would have helped show contrast and give a more complete picture about her last months. The scenes on the yacht and Ritz Hotel are nicely done and should have been longer.

Overall worth a watch for the perennially fascinating subject matter.
