Diana Synopsis and Credits

DIANA takes audiences into the private realm of one of the world’s most iconic and inescapably public women -- the Princess of Wales, Diana (two-time Oscar® nominee NAOMI WATTS) -- in the last two years of her meteoric life. On the occasion of the 16th anniversary of her sudden death, acclaimed director Oliver Hirschbiegel (the Oscar®-nominated Downfall) explores Diana’s final rite of passage: a secret love affair with Pakistani heart surgeon Hasnat Khan (NAVEEN ANDREWS, “Lost,” The English Patient), the human complications of which reveal the Princess’s climactic days in a compelling new light. Hirschbiegel directs from a screenplay by award-winning playwright Stephen Jeffreys, inspired by the book Diana: Her Last Love by Kate Snell, which was in turn drawn from extensive interviews with close friends and confidantes. The result is a window into the tumultuous, change-filled period from 1995-1997, in the wake of Diana’s shattering divorce from Prince Charles, and at the moment when she stood on the cusp of a different life, evolving into a global humanitarian, a master of maneuvering fame and becoming her own woman.

"Diana" stars Charles Edwards, Daniel Pirrie, Douglas Hodge, Geraldine James, Naomi Watts, and Naveen Andrews.

Directed by Oliver Hirschbiegel.
Written by Stephen Jeffreys.
Produced by Douglas Rae and Robert Bernstein.
Production company/distributor: eOne.

Release Date: November 01, 2013

Bruce Lee needs no introduction, but no one should mistaken the Martial Arts screen legend for our own brucelee. For some unknown reason, he despises Chinese spareribs.
