December 1991: the British royal family spends the Christmas holidays at their Sandringham estate in Norfolk. The embers of Prince Charles and Lady Diana’s marriage have long been extinguished and rumours are afoot about the prince's infidelities and an imminent divorce. But now peace must reign, as royal protocol demands. Soon, opulent dinners are being dished up, but this time without Diana’s presence. She wants to be free again – and revert to using her maiden name, Spencer. Chilean director Pablo Larraín's drama depicts in masterful tableaux the loneliness of a woman trapped in a gilded cage and her alienation from the influential royals. Diana is magnificently embodied by ZFF Honorary Award-winner Kristen Stewart – stunning!
