Heartbreaking. I have known people from all walks of life and from completely opposite ends of any spectrum you can imagine and they've all loved Diana. I guess that's just what being British is. I'm rarely proud of my country, and in fact resent it for many of the things portrayed here, but she was someone to be proud of and the pressures and difficulties she faced... they're unimaginable. I'm talking almost as though I knew her but she died before I was born - this movie is just so good at humanising her, at making her empathetic and relatable even more than she already is with her immense legacy... yeah. Excellent movie. I can see why many people won't like it but I found it very moving. Good stuff.
