SPECIAL EVENT: ‘Diana – Last Days Of A Princess’
Friday August 31
*Australia’s Genevieve O’Reilly (The Time Of Your Life) stars as Diana and Patrick Baladi (The Office, Bodies) stars as Dodi*
Ten years after the fatal crash that stunned the world, Australia’s GENEVIEVE O’REILLY stars in this powerful, cinematic drama which re-creates the final days of one of the 20th Century’s greatest icons. The film also features compelling interviews, including key eye-witnesses speaking on record for the first time, and building a complete picture of Diana’s tragic story of love, deceit, wealth and power.
It is August 1997 and Princess Diana is once more dominating headlines. Embracing romance and basking in luxury, her jet-set lifestyle is the stuff of fantasy. One year after her divorce with Prince Charles, she has cast aside her official protection officers and is provoking anger with her campaign against landmines. Diana is living life to the full, amid the constant glare of publicity, in the company of Dodi Al Fayed, son of international business tycoon Mohammed Al Fayed.
Accompanying the lovers from the palm trees of Saint Tropez to the sparkling streets of Paris, this powerful and emotive film reveals the key moments leading up to their death. As Diana seeks an elusive sense of freedom, and the photographers chase the promise of instant riches, discover exactly how events on the night of 31 August 1997 tragically spiralled out of control.
DIANA – LAST DAYS OF A PRINCESS stars GENEVIEVE O’REILLY as Princess Diana, PATRICK BALADI as Dodi Al Fayed, SHAUN DOOLEY as Trevor Rees Jones, JAMES BARRISCALE as Kez Wingfield, CARLO FERRANTE as Henri Paul and NADIM SAWALHA as Mohammed Al Fayed.
