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.

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.

Released in 2013 to terrible backlash (a staggeringly bad 4% rating on Rotten Tomatoes) but I decided to watch it myself. I can only say that this is not one of those films that make you say 'it's so bad, it's good', it's just shocking. Focusing on the two years prior to her death in Paris in 1997, this is a whistle stop look at basically the items that appeared in the press over that period - ie: if it was on the front cover of The Sun then it will feature somewhere in the film. The filmmakers have then decided to come up with what the people involved would have been saying behind the scenes and when they ran out of ideas just jump on to the next month, or year! The script is the worst of all, and even actors you may regard as being sound, look like they're just trying to remember a line they've seen only a couple of minutes ago. An example of this is when Diana's assistant resigns after her BBC interview, how bad is that line 'you are my rock' that she delivers?. It's embarrassing. It's done with no conviction at all, to be quite honest, all involved should be thoroughly ashamed. You certainly won't recognise any of the 'real life' characters here either (Fayed, Paul Burrell, Christiaan Barnard). It's been said in other reviews here, do not waste your money, this is truly the film that you can say 'that's 2 hours of my life I'll never get back'.

Unlike the majority of the feedback, (possibly fuelled by the panning of the critical press) I loved this movie, which intentionally focuses on the relationship between Diana and Hasnat Khan. If other viewers were expecting a full bio of her life, no wonder they were disappointed. I was impressed (unlike the rest) with the sets and costumes which I found convincing, and lavish. Naomi Watts was thoroughly believable as Diana and contrasted well with the character depicted as her lover. The writers had done their research and the torture suffered by those pursued by the paparazzi was only too apparent. I feel it unfair to label the script as being a weak "Mills and Boon" style slushy TV-movie - I found it to depict the characters as human, with all their frailties - and strengths, brilliantly. In short it was a window on her short life and an excuse to relive the period just before a very very sad loss.
