First Glance: “Spencer”

Since its enthusiastic premiere earlier this month at the Venice Film Festival, Pablo Larrain’s “Spencer” has become one of the most talked about movies of the Fall movie season. Most of the excitement has centered around Kristen Stewart’s highly acclaimed portrayal of Diana, Princess of Wales. Today Neon dropped the first full trailer and there’s a lot to like in what it shows us.

Larrain, who also directed 2016’s “Jackie”, brings along his unique and arresting style which can be cause for both curiosity and caution. We trailer is filled with striking camera shots and leaves the impression that the film will be leaning heavily on Stewart. There is an eye-catching supporting corps including Sally Hawkins, Timothy Spall, Sean Harris, and Jack Farthing. Count me among the group who is excited to see how this plays out.

“Spencer” lands in theaters November 5th. Check out the trailer below and let me know if you’ll be seeing it or taking a pass.

  1. Yeah, I want to see this. I was tearing up. Kristen Stewart is totally going to kill it and I had re-watched that scene in The Crown where Princess Diana was dancing to Billy Joel in front of the world and Prince Charles having a fit. What a dick.

  2. The Crown was better than any movie could be, and just as ‘cinematic’. The production values of high end TV are quite something, I feel you’re doing yourself a disservice sometimes! I might watch this one just for comparison sake, but will curtail my expectations.

    • I believe everything you say. And I’ll add that the casts in so many of today’s TV shows are just phenomenal. For me it’s that I already watch so many movies. If I added full series to it I would never be away from the television screen. 🤣

  3. 🟡 Pass 🎀 🟡
