Spencer ★★★★½


(okay, i'll elaborate. this felt real. this felt like i was in the room with Diana and her sons and there was a palpable, heavy albeit not claustrophobic, force pressing me into the floor. this felt like standing in the center of a chilly walk-in chef's refrigerator with all the air sucked out. but it also felt like the warmth and softness of holding your mom's hand as you run up a grassy hill as a child. and it felt like knowing that someone is so important -- to the world, yes... but mostly to you -- that you want to gobble them up and you are so frightened that you love them so much that you watch from a distance because that feels a bit safer. give Kristen Stewart her Oscar, right now.)
