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

A catalogue of cliches
10 February 2020 | by dierregiSee all my reviews

I could hardly believe the director of The Full Monty was involved in this uninspired production. Not a single politically correct stone is left unturned, while we follow:

  • Gay, sensitive guy, whose mum died at the same time of Diana
  • Fierce, unhappily married Muslim woman, who stands up to looser husband
  • Ambitious journalist on his honeymoon in Paris, who get chastised for trying to get a scoop and a career out of the most important news of his time
  • Spunky, loud-mouthed Glasgow female florist, who thinks to exploit the situation selling flowers down in London, but ends up donating everything during the funeral


Good to know that Diana's death and her "example" emboldened all these people, except the nasty journalist.

Unfortunately, in the 20 + years since, the exploitation of real and fake news just got much worse and the only winners are those digging in the dirt.
