The psychological drama, which was directed by Pablo Larraín (Jackie), sees Kristen Stewart star as the Princess of Wales, and it follows the famous figure on a weekend she spends with the royal family in 1991. During this holiday, the princess realizes that she wants to end her marriage to Prince Charles, and as Stewart previously said, the flick is “a dive inside an emotional imagining of who Diana was at a pivotal turning point in her life.”
Spencer has been teased for months, ever since the first photo of Stewart's transformation was revealed back in January. And just last week, production company Neon released the first trailer for the flick, where Stewart was seen channeling some of the royal's best looks (and we finally got to hear that British accent).
Now, Spencer had its official debut at the Venice International Film Festival, and based on the initial reviews, we're even more excited for this movie. According to a report from Variety, the minute the credits rolled, “the Venice crowd hooted and cheered, showering Stewart with a three-minute standing ovation.”
