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.

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.

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.

I don't really listen to what critics say about films, positive or negative, I would rather judge it for myself so I decided straight away that I wanted to watch this film to see if it could really be that bad.
I am a big fan of Naomi Watts and she stars in several of my favourite films so I found it hard to believe that she would take this role of such an iconic woman if it wasn't a great script and ultimately going to be a great film, unfortunately I couldn't have been more wrong.
Firstly I have to say that the cast did the best they could with what they were given, Naomi Watts got the voice and mannerisms of Diana perfectly but other than that it was just simply terrible, the script was cringeworthy and the whole thing just felt like a cheesy made for Tv movie, I actually feel sorry for the cast as I don't think this turned out to be what they thought it would. I doubt anyone will be brave enough to attemp a film about Diana again for a very long time and it's probably for the best, I don't think people are ready for it yet, hopefully when they do though, it will be much better than this abomination.

I really enjoyed this film, despite it's overwhelmingly bad reviews. I understand that it might not be everyone's cup of tea, but I think some people have rather ganged up on this film; that's just my opinion. It has very little to do with Di's public life and her death, which I think disappointed some people. It focuses almost entirely upon her relationship with Hasnat Khan. It's a sweet, romantic film, and when I saw it, there wasn't a dry eye in the cinema by the end!

Give this film a try, you never know, you might just enjoy it!

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.

well - it was nice to watch but there are a number of actresses who look far more like Diana than this one and i found this lady's performance as Diana somewhat disturbing and even irritating at times.
i cannot say that i knew Diana but I did work with her for a time before she was married and I was a bit disappointed.
I also felt that it could have been a little more believable that in some parts it was over dramatised and unreal and others underdone.
Also we are all aware that a Princess might have just a tadd more wealth than a commoner might have but really, this guy is a consultant and a well known a good one, he would not have lived in such a shoddy apartment regardless of his origins being from a third world country! I could go on but really i must only say that the film The Queen with Helen Mirren was far more authentic and even the characters were just a vague likeness, they were so well researched that they were more believable. Sorry but spoilt my memory of a dear 'more than acquaintance but not as much as a friend' lady.
