Complete plot and information about Spencer
Diana, Princess of Wales, formerly Diana Spencer, is not happy in the early 1990s – neither at Prince Charles’ side, nor with her celebrity and role in the British royal family. So she makes the decision that she has to do something. Only by ending her marriage to the heir to the British throne and going her own way can she make a difference in her life.
During the three Christmas holidays at the royal Sandringham estate in Norfolk, Diana finally comes to the decision to break with her preordained career path, even though this will have far-reaching consequences.
Background & info on Spencer
The renowned Chilean director Pablo Larraín had previously focused on an important female figure in world history with his first English-language film Jackie (2016): Jackie Kennedy.
Larraín associated many personal memories with Diana Spencer. At a young age, he was obsessed with their storybook wedding and the frequent coverage of the crown and the fairy tale that seemed to come true. Later, there was the accompanying pressure of celebrity. For his film, Larraín saw Diana’s refusal to once become queen alongside her prince as an opportunity to turn fairy tale historiography on its head. In Spencer, therefore, he wanted to deal not with Diana’s death in 1997, but with her fraying relationship with her husband and her love for her sons William and Harry.
Filming on Spencer began in January 2021, but the royal Windsor country estate was not filmed in England, but in Germany: at the Schlosshotel Kronberg near Frankfurt am Main. (ES)
