Movie Review: Diana

I want to start out this post by saying I know very little of the years leading up to Princess Diana's death.  I think there are very few people in this world that know the true story beyond what the paparazzi and the news outlets have shown us.  That being said the movie Diana (2013) is a thought provoking film that is well put together.

I for one could not even begin to assemble a movie about this great lady.  If you simply type Diana in to Google you will get millions of results on this wonderful woman.  The film is an interpretation of the last two or so years of Lady Diana's life.  It focuses on her relationship with Dr. Hasnat Kahn, but it also briefly shows her landmine work.  One message is entirely clear; she was a great humanitarian.

The performance by Naomi Watts is an impressive one, it can be very intimidating to take on a character so well known as Diana.  While she mimicked many of the late princesses mannerisms it find at times the way she delivered them was forced. The replication of costumes was also amazing!

Overall this was an entertaining movie that was fun to watch on a rainy afternoon.  I'd give it a 4 /5.
