    Kristen Stewart has been having a great career for the past few years, at the very least being the one great thing about some of the lesser movies she's been in, so it makes sense to give her a turn at the Oscar wheel with Spencer. Biopics don't enthuse me, but I like Pablo Larraín's take on the genre, focusing on a single event as a way to reveal his subject. With Jackie Kennedy it was funeral arrangements; for Lady Di, it's an emotional breakdown during a three-day Christmas with the family. Some elements are specific to her story - the oppression of her place in "history", food arriving as if on military trucks to highlight her struggle with bulimia, Royal hyper-surveillance and the prison of tradition - but it evokes some universal feelings for people who see the Holidays as an anxiety-laden obligation (raises hand), and for anyone who has lost themselves in a marriage and had to find their way back to their own identity. I found the film quite effective and ultimately, touching. And yes, it's all very well supported by Stewart's performance who would deserve the prizes she'll no doubt be nominated for. 1 month 1 week ago
