Spencer ★★★★

I’m not someone who obsesses over the royal family. I have never woken up early to watch a royal wedding. Besides my parents getting me the famed Princess Diana beanie baby when I was a kid, I could pretty much care less about the English Monarchy. 

That said, I went into it decently blind with respect to the inner workings of the royal family. I knew some of the gossip but wasn’t sure where the real life gossip ended and dramatic narrative began, which made for an intriguing and pleasant watch. 

This movie made me feel for the woman that was so loved by many and did a fantastic job of highlighting just how lonely very public life can be. Kristen Stewart gives perhaps her best and albeit most likable performance to date. 

Don’t expect too much drama, this movie is a slow burn.
