    Pablo Larraín’s film isn’t based on a wholly true event. Nor does it want to tell Diana’s life story. SPENCER is an act of psychological horror, a kind of ghost story, and a survivalist picture carried by an uncannily immersive Kristen Stewart, in one of the absolutely outstanding performances of her career which pulls together Diana’s lore and Larraín’s conception of her, creating a fleshed-out…
