Biopic starring Naomi Watts as the eponymous public icon, Diana Princess of Wales. The film tells the story of Diana's final two years before her death in Paris in 1997. Shortly after her divorce from Prince Charles, Diana began dating the respected British Pakistani heart surgeon Hasnat Khan (Naveen Andrews), although this relationship was short-lived due to Khan's insistence on keeping his matters private. During this period of her life Diana undertook a variety of fund-raising and charity work which only strengthened her appeal and reputation in the public eye and her relationship with Dodi Fayed (Cas Anvar), son of Egyptian business magnate Mohamed Al-Fayed, also garnered much public attention. However, it is this relationship that would spell the end for Diana as both were killed in a car crash in the Pont de l'Alma tunnel in Paris - an event which has been a topic of debate ever since.

This is a touching biopic about the last two years of Lady Diana's life. Naomi Watts takes the role of Diana, and although she is very good, she doesn't quite convey Di's shyness, she plays the role as a very confident lady.
The film's focus is very much on Di's love affair with a handsome heart surgeon, named Hasnat Khan, who's played by Naveen Andrews. The developing romance between the two is portrayed believably and deftly, Naomi and Naveen have a good on-screen chemistry.
The story inevitably includes Di's charitable work in Angola, where she endeavoured to bring more attention to the horrors caused by land mines. The BBC interview, where she spoke about three people being in her marriage, is included.
Lady Di, by all accounts, had a very close, loving relationship with her sons, William and Harry, but they are entirely peripheral in this film, appearing as characters on screen for about 30 seconds. Given their importance in her life, I think that this was a mistake in the film. Nobody appears as Prince Charles or any other royal family relation, which is a bit disappointing.
Hasnat can't reconcile his dedication to his work as a surgeon, with being involved with the most famous lady in the world, and this inevitably causes a rift in their relationship, which is sad to watch. Desperate to get over a broken heart, Di falls, seemingly half-heartedly, into the arms of Dodi Fayed, a yacht loving playboy.
Fayed only appears in the last 10 minutes of the film, and you learn very little about him save that he has a yacht. The film was slaughtered by critics, and I think unfairly so. Naomi Watts and Naveen Andrews are superb actors and they work well together, more than well enough to carry the film way out of reach of the category of turkey.
The film is beautifully shot, with locations including Angola, Pakistan and Sardinia. As a biopic, it is competently constructed, and it makes for perfect viewing on a lazy Sunday afternoon.

The first 45 minutes could be seen as some of the worst scenes of any biopic ever made.

Then it becomes a sub-par TV movie.

The film's cinematography may be good, but as a whole the film doesn't work. Everything is forced. The romance is wooden. And Watts' English accent is odd.

The film acts as if it's Stephen Frears' The Queen, building up suspense to the reveal of Naomi Watts as Diana, but she doesn't look like Diana. Yet it wouldn't make a difference as the way she is directed, mixed with the poor script results in a weirdly off performance for the central character.

There are nice moments, especially nearer the end, as the press becomes too much.

Apart from that this film feels to safe. I didn't feel like I found out anything new. It just needed some kind of edge. Maybe it did need to offend somebody.

Was expecting more from this as Naomi watts was great in the impossible but this was more like a mills and boon and a cheaply made looking film that onky focused in her relationship with the Indian dr not anything else. It was a very lightweight version of events and not as good as the other Diana film and that wasn't great but at least gave a bigger picture of the events surrounding her life and tragic death.

I hadn't read any reviews of this film so was going in with an open mind. Diana always will be the peoples princess in my mind, so I was interested to see how this film would portray her.

The main focus is her relationship with Hasnat Khan, which I will admit I knew little about. I can't imagine what it must have been like for him to carry on after her death. I believe he is still working as a surgeon, but the interest in him at the time must have been huge. The film is also brilliant at conveying the claustrophobic, overwhelming interest of the press and how she was hounded every day.

Her relationship with her two boys could have been made more of. We are led to believe she was very close to them but was only allowed to see them every few weeks. I thought the use of silence and music in the film really added to it and was so cleverly done.

It lost a star and a half as I will agree with others that it was a little dull. I always imagine Diana to be a very strong woman and how she threw herself at Hasnat, practically begging him to be with her, made me cringe. At times he was absolutely awful.

I thought this was a good effort. There is always a difficulty with films like this as people have different opinions and ideas. I was crying by the end and I'm really glad I've seen it.

This film is meant to be based around Diana's relationship after her marriage ended with the prince. Being very young when she passed away, I was not able to remember alot of facts surrounding Diana's life.

To be honest, I thought that alot of the film was quite distasteful and really boring. It centered far too much on intimate scenes. It was never going to be easy making a film about one of the most loved princesses in the world. Other aspects of her life could have been made into a film which would have made it more interesting.

Also, in my own opinion, Naomi's acting was quite wooden in parts. However, this may be down to the poor script.

Worth watching if curious, but perhaps not something I would buy if I had known what it would be like.
