The main things I took from this were: being impressed at how Timothy Spall was able to keep his facial expression looking exactly like a dog’s anus for the whole film, thinking that Diana’s chambermaids ushering her along a corridor looked like volunteer stewards at a CAMRA beer festival, and empathising with Diana’s feeling of being hopelessly trapped.  Although in the case of the latter, mine was less about a restrictive dynastic culture and more about having paid £4.50 to rent on Prime and I might as well see it through cos there’s no way I’ll be going back to finish it later.
