Entering the cinema auditorium with a pre-conceived pessimistic
judgment on the film yet determined to watch it anyways, I can only say
that I am glad that I had not allowed for media and critic opinion to
dissuade me from watching "Diana." The film does not portray Diana in a
bad way at all. If anything, it reiterates the absolute disgusting
habits our press have had in terms of absolute disregard and disrespect
for people's privacy. You feel a certain connection with Diana
throughout the film, and see her for the "normal person" she was deep
down. Naomi Watts' performance was spectacular, and she certainly did
Diana justice. Although the film is most certainly disliked by many –
i.e: the media, Islamophobes and daily mail readers… It is disliked
for the mere fact that the film provides an insight into things that
make certain people very uncomfortable, such as the prospect of the
Princess of Wales marrying to a Pakistani Muslim, and the fact that
Diana was actually a human being, with feelings, and with a difficult
life.

So all I can say is, ignore the media, and make judgements for
yourself. Perhaps after watching the film, you would rate it as highly
as I have, or perhaps you may walk out half way through… Regardless,
it's a fantastic film with a beautiful portrayal of the 'People's
Princess'… Be warned: Take some Kleenex with you…The ending… is
rather emotional
