Naomi Watts’ Diana Dazzles with Blu-ray and DVD Release

Audiences can enter the private realm of the Princess of Wales with the home release of the biographical drama, ‘Diana.’ The romance film, which stars two-time Academy Award-nominated actress Naomi Watts in the title role, will be released on Blu-ray, DVD and Digital Download on February 11.

Entertainment One (eOne) will distribute the anticipated home release of the Oliver Hirschbiegel-directed film. The Blu-ray will retail for $29.98, while the DVD will sell for $24.98. The eOne Blu-ray and DVD releases will feature exclusive bonus interviews with the cast and crew, as well as a 16-page Diana Fashion Photo Booklet. The booklet offers insight into how the filmmakers captured Diana’s iconic fashion sense.

The following official synopsis for ‘Diana’ has been released by eOne:

Sixteen years after her sudden death, acclaimed director Oliver Hirschbiegel (the Oscar-nominated ‘Downfall’) explores Diana’s secret love affair with Pakistani heart surgeon Hasnat Khan (Naveen Andrews), the human complications of which reveal the Princess’s climactic days in a compelling new light. Hirschbiegel directed from a screenplay by award-winning playwright Stephen Jeffreys, inspired by the book Diana: Her Last Love by Kate Snell, which was in turn drawn from extensive interviews with close friends and confidantes. The result is a window into the tumultuous, change-filled period from 1995-1997, in the wake of Diana’s shattering divorce from Prince Charles, and at the moment when she stood on the cusp of a different life, evolving into a global humanitarian, a master of maneuvering fame and becoming her own woman.
