Kristen Stewart (Twilight) was nominated for a 2022 Oscar as Princess Diana in the biographical drama Spencer, set during the royal family’s 1991 Christmas holiday at Sandringham House, as Princess Diana contemplates leaving the then-Prince Charles.
Time Out says, “Kristen Stewart is extraordinary.” “Her Princess Diana is one for the ages,” says Awards Daily, and The Guardian calls Spencer, “Rich and intoxicating and altogether magnificent.”
Directed by multi-award-winning Pablo Larrain (Jackie), Spencer also stars Oscar nominee Sally Hawkins (The Shape of Water), and BAFTA nominee Timothy Spall (Secrets & Lies), with Jack Farthing (Poldark) as Prince Charles.
Spencer has an 83% critics’ rating on Rotten Tomatoes. As Time Out says, “Showing how the dream of being a rich and beautiful princess curdled into a nightmare might sound like a hard sell, but Spencer pulls it off in heightened, claustrophobic and truly decadent fashion.”
