Spencer | Ratings & Reviews

"A magnificent farce..."

The GuardianThe Guardian

"Magnificent..."

VarietyVariety

"Not everything lands in Spencer... But it tells a sorrowful story we all think we know in a new and genuinely disturbing light..."

Hollywood ReporterHollywood Reporter

"(An) infuriating mixed bag, one that veers wildly from moments of dreamy intrigue to risible scenes of camp."

The TimesThe Times

"(The script) is often witless and banal... either overstuffed with “meaning”, or just deathly dull."

Little White LiesLittle White Lies

"A folly that wobbles between the bold and the bad, the disturbingly gothic and the just plain silly."

BBCBBC

"Larraín turns this Diana into exactly the thing the royal family accused the real-life Diana of being, a willful and pouty constant complainer."

Time MagazineTime Magazine

"(Spencer) plays as sort of a haunted house chamber piece that doesn’t try to locate the real woman behind the legend."

IndieWireIndieWire

"It takes one of the most promising screen actresses of her generation and casts her out to sea with nothing to hold onto but a hideous script... without depth or understanding."

San Francisco ChronicleSan Francisco Chronicle

"An enlightening glimpse into the mind of Princess Diana that doubles as an effective horror film."

USA TodayUSA Today

"If Spencer has style and performance in spades, those strengths aren’t matched by the film’s screenplay, which is both overly on-the-nose and peppered with metaphors..."

The Washington PostThe Washington Post

"The point of Spencer seems to be not to reveal Diana the real person, but to treat her differently in a cinematic sense..."

NPRNPR

"Once you get past how Stewart captures Diana's look and spirit, there's not much more to see or learn."
