Storyline

In 1997 news that Princess Diana has just died in a car crash is particularly resonant for young Jack Hawkins, whose own mother has just passed away. Estranged from his father Colin, he seeks help from neighbour Russell, leading to mutual romance, before reconciling with Colin at his mother's funeral. Meanwhile in Bradford unhappy wife Yasmin, whose domineering, debt-ridden husband Hassan has no sympathy with Diana - claiming she should have stayed with Prince Charles - sees the chance to escape with her little girl to her uncle Zaheer, in London, where she relishes her new-found independence. In Scotland florist Mary McDonald, caring for her dementia-stricken mother, sees an opportunity to drive to London with business partner Gordie and sell flowers to the mourning public whilst on honeymoon in Paris ambitious journalist Michael Lewis is also aware that Diana's death will give him his big break but it costs him his marriage. Mary is also disappointed by her lack of success but ... Written by don @ minifie-1

The full Diana treatment
6 September 2017 | by Prismark10See all my reviews

As we get to the 20th anniversary of Princess Diana's death, not only do we have to put up with a slew of documentaries by all the television channels, we also now get a fictional drama about how her death affected the lives of four people.

Teenager Jack's mother has died in hospital on the same night as Diana who her mother adored. He is unhappy that his dad remarried a younger woman and he has issues surrounding his own sexuality.

Mary in Glasgow is an ambulance chasing florist who sees the death of Diana as a money making opportunity to sell flowers in London.

Michael is an ambitious young journalist on his honeymoon in Paris when he is awoken and told of the new of Diana's death His agency sends him out to interview about the chauffeur's drinking habits much to annoyance of his wife.

Yasmin is married to a failed businessman who is also a chauvinist pig. She takes her daughter to London so she can pay her respects.

Peter Cattaneo who 20 years ago directed the gritty and charming The Full Monty has come unstuck in this twee, incoherent and cloying drama which has all the clichés and stereotypes in the book.

The tough Glaswegian with a mother who has Alzheimer's with a best friend who loves her.

The journalist who puts his own career opportunities ahead of marital bliss even when he tries to look for his wife.

The confused, rather dim gay teenager. At least his dad understood him (a nice understated performance from Neil Morrissey.)

The Asian woman with a dominant husband who puts the boot in by saying 'my mother was right about you.'

The whole thing just came across as tacky when the makers tried so hard to be earnest.
