Spencer

Spencer
  • 2021
  • UK / US / Germany / Chile
  • 1h 51min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Pablo Larraín
  • Cast: Kristen Stewart, Timothy Spall, Jack Farthing, Sean Harris, Sally Hawkins

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’.

As played with intoxicating perfection by Kristen Stewart, who dominates almost every scene of Spencer, Diana is dying on the vine, showing only flashes of her former effervescence. Hers is the world’s most scrutinised persona since she began living the fairy-tale life of a girl who grew up to marry a prince; in reality, her husband rather publicly loves someone else. She’s also suffocating under the expectations of total subservience to Royal protocol. Working from a beautiful script by Steven Knight, 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 Her Majesty’s disapproval of the young princess. The exquisite craft of Spencer makes you want to freeze every moment. director of photography Claire Mathon (Portrait of a Lady on Fire) shoots in 4:3 ratio with a micro-universe of colour emerging from the muted environments designed by Guy Hendrix Dyas. And Jonny Greenwood illuminates Diana’s internal tussle with solo piano and strings. It’s oppressive, until it isn’t anymore. Stewart and Larraín deliver a finale that will break your heart and make it skip all at once.

A four screen Odeon on Edinburgh's Lothian Road.

The Croma pizzeria now occupies the ground-floor lobby but the cinema is there, tucked away underground, although you may have to thread your way through crowded tables to get to it. The cinema contains wheelchair spaces and there's a lift to the basement. The popcorn is fresher than usual and beers as well as soft drinks are available.

Lothian buses 1, 10, 11, 15, 16, 24 and 34 run past the cinema from Princes Street on a regular basis. If you don't fancy Italian food, the Odeon is also handily close to some of Lothian Road's best food & drink joints: Illegal Jack's restaurant and The Hanging Bat pub are virtually opposite. For family groups there are branches of chain restaurants a little further down the hill.

Haymarket station is the closest rail access.
