Another documentary about Diana Spencer has entered production not for the sake of rave reviews from fans. The reason could be the increased popularity of the royal family in the past few years.
Titled The Princess, which premiered at Sundance in January, is set to air in August on HBO and streaming service. The picture will again tell the viewer the story of the relationship between Princess Diana and Prince Charles, as well as the birth of their two sons. It will not do without discussing the mysterious circumstances of the death of 36-year-old Lady Dee as a result of a car accident.
However, the project, led by director Ed Perkins, has already received a lot of unflattering reviews online. An important role could be played by the excessive hackneyedness of this topic, which was used more than once by various film companies.
“Isn’t this the 50th documentary about her..”, “Can we let Diana rest in peace?”, “Perhaps we should shoot about someone else?” – commentators write on the HBO YouTube channel .
It is also possible that the producers of the notorious studio could be guided by a banal sense of profit. On the big name of the late princess, you can earn good ratings and get good publicity. Film critic Nikolai Nikulin , who expressed his opinion for the PopCornNews portal, is also sure of this.
“Biographies of famous people have always been and will always be popular. Scandalous biographies – even more so. The stronger the demand, the more often cinema bosses, whose concern is not art at all, but money, will turn to a fruitful topic, ”said the critic.
