Pablo Larraín’s sublime ‘fable from a true story’ imagines a Christmas weekend at Sandringham in the early 1990s, as an unhappy Princess Diana contemplates saying ‘no’.

The marriage of Princess Diana (Kristen Stewart) and Prince Charles (Jack Farthing) has long since grown cold. Though rumours 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. But this year, things will be a whole lot different.

Working from a beautiful script by Steven Knight, Pablo Larraín (Jackie) ingeniously depicts a world in which every polished spoon and heavy curtain, every steely stare from staff, even a seemingly ‘jolly’ Christmas tradition, expresses disapproval. Kristen Stewart, too, is magnicent, shining in a role that is sure to earn her an Oscar nomination.

"What a heroine and what thrillingly gutsy, seductive, uninhibited filmmaking this is - ★★★★★" - Robbie Collin, Daily Telegraph
