We are The People’s Movies, She was the People’s Princess and this is her trailer and romance prevails for Diana in new 2nd UK Trailer for Oliver Hirschbiegel‘s Diana.
Diana follows the last 2 tragic years of Diana Spencer (Naomi Watts) and her relationship with Dr Hansat Khan (Naveen Andrews) whom many believed was the true love of her life. 2 years of bliss but as the media invaded her privacy leading to turmoil and tragedy.
When it comes to biopics there ten a penny, when it comes to biopics on Royal Family (Kings Speech, Queen) they deliver some degree of success however Diana looks might buck the trend. The first trailer came across a bit too tv movie/mini series, the new trailer does come across a little melodramatic but put that to one side this is more of a positive for the film. Delivering the happier side of Diana‘s last 2 years and I do hope there is some good in the film as Naomi Watt‘s performance in titular role is worthy of some recognition during the awards season.
Celebrated and adored by millions, she was the Queen of people’s hearts, yet the bittersweet story of the last man to truly capture hers has never before been told. Princess Diana (double Academy Award nominee Naomi Watts), at one time the most famous woman in the world, inspired a nation with her generosity, compassion and kindness – and in her final years she would meet the man who, in turn, inspired her.
When Diana met Doctor Hasnat Khan (Naveen Andrews), she found someone who could see beyond the exterior, to the vulnerable and complex woman underneath. An incredible source of strength to her, it was during this relationship that Diana accomplished some of her most rewarding and successful humanitarian work. As Diana fell in love with Dr Khan, she didn’t just feel like a Princess – but like the woman she truly was.
In a story that until now has remained untold, DIANA introduces a time in the Princess’s life that was uniquely important in shaping her final years, fulfilling her search for true happiness and sealing her legacy. The film is directed by Oliver Hirschbiegel, stars Naomi Watts and Naveen Andrews and is produced by Ecosse Films.
Diana will be released in UK & Irish cinemas nationwide on September 20th 2013.
