For those of us who have witnessed Kristen Stewart’s charm since the Twilight era, the flurry of critique for her latest role as Princess Diana in “Spencer” biopic feels like a long time coming.

The “Spencer” star has always been an excellent actress. However, not all mainstream viewers know it yet. Her most notable role remains one that brought her compelling fame at 22 years old. That time, Stewart was the highest-paid actress worldwide, despite facing mockery and vitriol from haters who claimed that she was just simply bringing her real-life aloofness to the screen. But after nearly a decade since her exit from the blockbusters, Stewart has returned to the spotlight to give us goosebumps with her Princess Diana portrayal.

The movie, whose title came from Princess Diana’s maiden name, highlights the three-day Christmas celebration of the royal family at Sandringham Estate in Norfolk, Virginia around 1992, narrating the collapsing marriage of the Prince and Princess of Wales (Charles and Diana). Meanwhile, Ingrid Seward, a biographer and journalist with whom Princess Diana was friendly, was impressed by Stewart’s performance on portraying the late royal: “Out of all the people who have played Diana over the past 10 years, she’s the closest to her. She managed to perfect her mannerisms.” Directed by Pablo Larraín, “Spencer” started showing in theaters on November 5, 2021.
