    I have to say I was really concerned about this bit before the film but I was stunned by how it really didn’t feel out of place with the film’s character study. In theory it shouldn’t have worked but on paper and film it did!

    I didn’t know about it going into the film but similarly to you, it only added to the story and didn’t feel disjointed or take you out of it in any way.

    Would you say that it distinguishes itself from “The Crown” and in what ways?

    Stylistically it’s different and it opens itself to more creative risks than The Crown does.

    I also think it lets itself dive into the inner turmoil of Diana without the restrictions of having to somewhat accurately portray the entire family and look at both sides of the coin.

    Just saw this at LFF and I’m shook. A Stewart sweep would not be surprising at all, and she would deserve it. It’s not just comfortably the best performance of her career, but the best portrayal of a real life character I’ve seen in a long time – maybe since Portman in Jackie funnily enough. The Anne Boleyn motif felt heavy-handed at times, but Pablo so expertly presents the film as a fable that any ‘on the nose’ moments still work somehow. The level to which he submerges the audience in Diana’s turmoil can only be achieved with inventive direction, and some of the choices he makes are really creative. Hawkins would make an excellent supporting nominee, although the role may be too small for that to happen. On the whole, I prefer the medium of TV to film, but let’s just say this would be the best episode of The Crown.

    I don’t know whether I’d nominate her personally

    I said this about Molly Parker in Pieces of a Woman last year due to how small the role was, but I think she still scraped into my personal awards. Hawkins says so much with so few words, and her main scenes are easily two of the highlights of the film.

    What did you think of Timothy Spall btw? He gave the other “smaller supporting performance” that I thought was particularly striking in the film.

    Spall is someone I definitely wouldn’t nominate for this, though he was good. I actually disliked the small scene where he places the Anne Boleyn book back on the shelf at the end – it had already clearly been implied that he put it there, so we didn’t need to see that.

    Are you seeing anything else (if you don’t mind me asking)?

    Benedetta on the film side, and maybe Dopesick and Succession (if I can find a reseller 💀) on the TV side. Also considering Mass.

    I think I’ve accidentally deleted my post in response to you mafro987 so sorry about that haha. Internet coordination and I are never a match!

    I strongly agree with this and great analogy with Molly Parker’s turn in <i>Pieces of a Woman</i>. The moments involving both their characters in both of their films I guess felt incredibly human and heartfelt to me? As you said Hawkins said so much with such a small amount of screen time and I felt her chemistry with Stewart was quite raw.

    Benedetta on the film side, and maybe Dopesick and Succession (if I can find a reseller 💀) on the TV side. Also considering Mass.

    How exciting! Will be interesting to hear your thoughts on Benedetta and Mass if you do end up seeing the latter. I’m seeing The Power of the Dog (I don’t know if I can stomach watching a Campion film on a screener on a computer tbh), Last Night in SohoThe Lost Daughter and then Flee on BFI Player.

    I have nothing but envy for anyone who managed to get tickets to the Succession screening. I got onto the BFI site and they sold out within 20 minutes 💀💀💀. Oh to hear Nicholas Britell’s score on the big screen…

    SO jealous you got The Lost Daughter tickets! That’s the one I wanted to get a ticket for but couldn’t!

    Wow wow wow wow! That’s quite a nice variety. Was hoping to get a ticket for Titane but sigh.

    I really do like the wider accessibility this year and I hope it is something the BFI continue to do as time goes on. Pandemic or not a cinematic experience should be something that people have wider opportunities to see first hand.

    I was only able to get Titane tickets because of the partner cinema near me having it on. Wouldn’t have stood a chance if I was relying on the London screens.

    Agreed, I’d love for this to be a norm for the LFF going forwards.
