Diana - Movie Synopsis & Plot

DIANA takes audiences into the private realm of one the world’s most iconic and inescapably public women -- the Princess of Wales, Diana (two-time Oscar® nominee NAOMI WATTS) -- in the last two years of her meteoric life. On the occasion of the 16th anniversary of her sudden death, acclaimed director Oliver Hirschbiegel (the Oscar®-nominated Downfall) explores Diana’s final rite of passage: a secret love affair with Pakistani heart surgeon Hasnat Khan (NAVEEN ANDREWS, “Lost,” The English Patient), the human complications of which reveal the Princess’s climactic days in a compelling new light.

Hirschbiegel directs from a screenplay by award-winningplaywright Stephen Jeffreys, inspired by the book Diana: Her Last Love by Kate Snell, which was in turn drawn from extensive interviews with close friends and confidantes. The result is a window into the tumultuous, change-filled period from 1995-1997, in the wake of Diana’s shattering divorce from Prince Charles, and at the moment when she stood on the cusp of adifferent life, evolving into a global humanitarian, a master of maneuvering fame and becoming her own woman.

MOVIE REVIEW

Naomi Watts is a terrific actress who looks like Princess Diana, so it's no surprise that she was cast as the controversial British royal in Diana. More surprising is that the movie, from the director of the powerful Downfall, is a safe and forgettable romantic drama.
