Appropriately, the new full international trailer for the Princess Diana biopic opens with the incessant clicks of camera shutters. Oliver Hirschbiegel’s (“Downfall”, “Five Minutes of Heaven”) new film takes place during the last two years of Diana’s life, when her every move was captured in the tabloids.
“Diana” finds the Princess (played by Naomi Watts) falling in love with surgeon Hasnat Khan (Naveen Andrews). The constant presence of cameras and reporters, however, makes it difficult for the most famous woman in the world to reconcile her public life with her personal one. The film’s romantic storyline, strong lead performances, and (so far unannounced) fall release date means we should be hearing more of it come awards season.
No word on a US release date yet, but we presume it is coming soon via eOne. September 20 is the UK release date.
