Diana, Princess of Wales, led a life of romance and tragedy typically reserved for storybooks, her worldwide fame directly contributing to her untimely death in 1997. This visually polished, Oscar-baiting docudrama chronicles her final two years, and even in death she’s a subject of invasive speculation. Screenwriter Stephen Jeffreys cooks up grandly romantic conversations between the title character (Naomi Watts) and her first post-marriage lover, Hasnat Kahn (Naveen Andrews), a Pakistani heart surgeon known for valuing his privacy. He’s envisioned here as a smooth talker who quotes 13th-century poetry and espouses on the virtues of jazz; Diana is painted as controlling, lovesick, and irrational. The conjecture effectively ruins the film’s chances at having any cultural or historic significance. Oliver Hirschbiegel directed.
