Kristen Stewart is totally attractive in the title role. She has a goofy, polite act like Diana, and that’s exactly what it should be when you consider that Diana herself did a goofy and polite act herself, embellishing her innate elegance with shavings of studied flirtation. When she collapsed she lost her balance, it was like looking at a perfect woman who is actually imperfect. But Stewart effectively captures the agony of a woman so programmed and isolated that she feels she has no escape and has lost sight of who she is.

I have no words to describe Stewart’s performance, moving from feeling like an incredibly well-told figure to beautifully attaining the essence of who she was.

Choosing Stewart, another secret celebrity who knows the obsessive and bossy glow of fandom better than most, is inspiring. Not only is her performance a completely transformative feat of mimicry, though she paid special attention to Diana’s posture and pose, in particular. Instead, it’s an ironic and empathetic evocation of a woman somehow stuck in her inner and outer life, frozen in the hallway – before running to the fire escape.
