“December, 1991: The Prince and Princess of Wales’ marriage has long since grown cold. Though rumors of affairs and a divorce abound, peace is ordained for the Christmas festivities at Sandringham Estate. There’s eating and drinking, shooting and hunting. Diana knows the game. This year, things will be a whole lot different,” the official synopsis reads.
The said film is written by acclaimed writer Steven Knight, creator of “Peaky Blinders” and writer for “Locke.” Stewart is joined by co-actors Timothy Spall, Sally Hawkins and Sean Harris.
Neon also disclosed that Larraín’s creative team includes director of photography Claire Mathon (“Portrait of a Lady on Fire”), costume designer Jacqueline Durran (Academy award-winner for “Little Women”), makeup and hair designer Wakana Yoshihara (“Murder on the Orient Express”) and production designer Guy Hendrix Dyas (Academy Award nominee for “Passengers” and “Inception”).
Composing the original score is Academy Award, BAFTA and Grammy Award nominee, Radiohead’s Jonny Greenwood (“You Were Never Really Here,” “Phantom Thread”). /ra
