Spencer: Pablo Larraín’s New, Original Take on the Biopic Genre–Princess Diana

Like his previous biopic, Jackie, Pablo Larraín’s new original feature, Spencer, dissects another legendary historical character, this time around Princess Diana.

In the process, he constructs a tale that is effective as a blistering satire of the British monarchy, a psychological portrait with facets of Princess Diana unseen before, and ultimately, a fable that turns into a Gothic horror show.
