Diana, Naomi, sob!

A teaser trailer for the upcoming Diana starring Naomi Watts has been released. It’s so obvious what they’re trying to do here. With the piano and the familiar imagery...

And still...

It works.

Because we are SO familiar with that imagery. All it takes is a hairstyle. Or a dress. A shot of a yacht. And, of course, most heartbreakingly, that opening visual of a hotel room, and a woman seen from behind, in white jeans and a blazer...

If you remember Diana, and that final day, and those days that followed, when so many of us obsessively watched every minute of coverage right up to that impossibly sad funeral, you know those white jeans and that blazer. You know the hotel. You know it’s the Ritz in Paris. You know that’s what she was wearing when she left that night, to get in the car. It’s what she was wearing when she was gone.

No idea if the movie is any good. Not sure it matters though. I mean... it was made for those who are going to see it anyway, regardless, right?
