An absolute must see and a tear-jerker of a sweet, intimate portrait and tribute. I have so much more respect for Princes William and Harry, emulating their mother in her casual approach to live and class, minging with the kind of people she did in her empathy and love for the neglected, avoided, and downtrodden. It was incredible hearing about her manner with her children as a mother, wanting them to live a normal kid's life not so burdened with formality and closed in; as well as her compassion and public and risky close association and fight for the causes she was exposed to: rampant homelessness in London, the AIDS epidemic in the 80s and reducing the stigma of close contact, the suffering from the civil war in Bosnia and fighting for the global, total disarmament of minefields, child bereavement---all working towards radical advocacy. And a bonus was the musical composition and background piano, setting me matching the mood and tenderness of remembrance of a life which sought to impact broadly and intimately. Such important lessons we glean from her, and the testimony of those who knew her intimately.

Sobering. Felt like a mix between a Hickcockian noir and conspiracy techno-thriller and exposé investigation drama. Bob Peck's performance was standout. The actor who played Jedberg reminded very much like Philip Seymour Hoffman, the other standout performance. Come also for Eric Clapton's co-scoring. Heightened as a follow-up to the Flemish-Belgian crime drama, Hotel Beau Séjour.
