Kristen Stewart's much-anticipated performance as Princess Diana in Pablo Larraín's Spencer has been tipped as an Oscar frontrunner ever since the film debuted at the Venice Film Festival this fall.
The drama takes place over the Christmas period of 1991, and picks up as the British royal family is making preparations to spend the holidays at Sandringham, the Queen's country retreat in Norfolk. Diana's marriage to Prince Charles has been quietly crumbling for some time, thanks to his ongoing affair with Camilla Parker-Bowles, and in the run-up to the holidays she's on the verge of a breakdown. "Though rumors of affairs and a divorce abound, peace is ordained for the Christmas festivities at the queen's estate," the official synopsis explains. "There's eating and drinking, shooting and hunting. Diana knows the game, but this year, things will be profoundly different."
Larraín is known for his unique and evocative angles on infamous women, having previously directed Natalie Portman in 2016's Jackie, which focused on Jackie Kennedy in the immediate aftermath of JFK's assassination. All in all, there's a lot to look forward to here.
Spencer was released in theaters on November 5th, and is still showing in many areas. But since many people have gotten used to being able to enjoy new releases from the comfort of their own couch, you may be wondering whether there are any streaming options available.
How to Watch
As of right now, Spencer is available to stream on one platform only—Redbox On Demand. As the name suggests, Redbox doesn't work like Netflix or HBO Max, where users pay a subscription fee in exchange for access to a library of content. Instead, it's modeled after an old-school video store, where you pay a one-time fee to rent or buy a specific title. Right now, Spencer is available as part of Redbox's Early Access tier. You can rent it for $19.99, or buy it for $24.99.
It's likely that in the coming months, once the theatrical release window ends, Spencer will become available to rent and buy on more streaming platforms like iTtunes, Amazon Prime Video and Apple TV. But for now, your choices are Redbox, or a movie theater.
