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.
