NEON Films has released a teaser trailer to "Spencer," the film that has Kristen Stewart portraying Princess Diana.
Set to a choral version of Lou Reed's "Perfect Day," the clip juxtaposes servants laying out royal finery for a sumptuous holiday dinner with Stewart's Diana, tearfully looking at herself in a bathroom mirror. "Ma'am?" a servant knocks at the door. "They're waiting for you."
Diana is shown hurrying down a hallway to dutifully make an appearance with the other guests at the table, looking unsteady as she does.
The Pablo Larraín-directed project takes place in the 1990s and will have Stewart playing Diana over a crucial Christmas holiday during which she plotted her divorce from Prince Charles and began charting a life away from the British royal family.
The snippets shown in the teaser get increasingly frantic, with Diana literally spinning out of control.
"They know everything," a woman tells Diana. "They don't," is her somber reply.
The synopsis from production company Neon reads, "December, 1991: The Prince and Princess of Wales’ marriage has long since grown cold. Though rumours of affairs and a divorce abound, peace is ordained for the Christmas festivities at Sandringham Estate. There's eating and drinking, shooting and hunting. Diana knows the game. This year, things will be a whole lot different."
Princess Diana was killed Aug. 31, 1997, in a car crash in Paris as she was being pursued by paparazzi.
The film debuts Nov. 5.
