Plot: The penultimate romance Lady D had before dying.


The plot description is all what it is. I don't know what happened on Sunday but I was just watching movies about strong or prominent females. I was curious about this one, and frankly Naomi Watts, did an excellent portrayal and I think she ALMOST got the accent well. I am not an expert, but if you compare her performance with real life footage and countless on material online, you will see she did well. I have read a lot of non idyllic material about Lady Diana Spencer, and the movie shows her with the flaws, and also the good qualities I have read about, her shyness, her love for the attention of the media, her interest in social causes, her generosity, her seek for love that drove her to be a bit clingy. While I do not know if she got that far as this movie shows, (really wearing a wing and escaping to clubs?, hiding her lover in the car?) anyway, what I DISLIKED about the movie, was that she was not show as much as a mother, the movie focused ONLY in the romance she had with Dr. Khan and her interest and influence in social causes, but she was much more than that, and in such case the movie did not do any justice. I hope "The Crown" gets to show her a bit more, despite being focus mostly in Queen Elizabeth.
