Several comments: this movie has been universally panned by the critics, and it obviously has not done well at the box office either (more on that later), so I must admit I had some doubts about seeing this, but given that Naomi Watts was playing Diana, I took a chance on this. As it turns out, I quite enjoyed this movie! I have no idea whether the events between Diana and Kahn as depicted in this movie are accurate or whether some of them even happened at all (did the two of them really snuck out of London in Diana's butler's car and took a trip to the cliffs of Dover?).Read more ›
Such is the problem with "Diana." It should have been called "Diana and the Doctor" (terrible but I can't think of anything better right now) or something like "An Affair to Remember."
I've now seen Diana twice, and I think that the slew of bad reviews was unfair. I think it's a good little movie. And I think that Naomi's performance was brilliant. She was so brave to take it on, and she admirably walked a fine line between mimicry and relaxing into the role. I think everybody had their own Diana movie in their head, and this film couldn't live up to their expectations.
A key to it is "Brief Encounter," mentioned by Naveen Andrews in the interview with him on the DVD. He had that film in mind when he accepted role. Made in 1945, it was a simple film that's a tiny masterpiece. Two married people meet and fall in love. They meet once a week at the movies. Then they must part. I can't remember all the details; I'm going to see it again. Anyway, "Diana" was a tightly focused film about a romance and its very special challenges. I wouldn't want to see a more active scene of Di with her boys, because that would shift the focus of the film. I think it was a movie that was true to its intention. I think Hasnat could have been more handsome and charismatic, as the real Hasnat is described, but Naveen was pretty good in the part nevertheless.Read more ›

I saw it that Princess Diana had blossomed. Spreading her wings
and soaring. Her own woman. The
candle in the wind. Also Your Song

Really liked everything about this film. I have not grown tired of watching it often.Published 24 days ago by Maureen W.
Not a bad movie. Watts is rather wonderful in her ability to recreate the mannerisms, speech, and in general convey the sense of Diana as we remember her. Read morePublished 2 months ago by sea heather
