Pretty Mondays: Diana, The Movie
This past week, I was invited to preview the film Diana (released this past weekend.) I invited a girlfriend along for some good company (this was very important.)
The film covered a part of her life I was not expecting - the years after her split and divorce from Prince Charles. The film was slow at times, and used copious amounts of cinematography - long shots of emotions playing over the character's faces. This is where the good company comes in to play. There were plenty of scenes in which Hilari and I shared "looks" that spoke volumes, and sometimes caused smothered laughter. Even the woman next to us, a complete stranger, got in on the good times. At one point, the camera is panning a clearly-used bed, and we hear (but cannot see) Diana saying something to the effect of, "Mmm, I just love your hand there." The woman next to us muttered, "I bet!" and we all giggled like silly school-girls. Haha! Where was his hand, you ask? Well, you will just have to see the film to find out (wink.) In the end, the film only left me with more questions about Princess Diana. Was she crazy? Was she just like the rest of us (minus the obvious differences, lol!)?
