What do the walls of the palace where she is a little princess hide? A golden cage, an abyss, and a lot of complicated feelings that Priscilla has to deal with.

Napoleon, dir. Ridley Scott (2023)

Trailer:

Who would have thought that Ridley Scott's new movie about the French emperor would be so much about his personal life? But yes, this movie, at least its theatrical version, not the director's cut, is as much about relationships as it is about battles. Napoleon's main woman throughout his life was Josephine. She had the power to control him: he ran to her after every victory and defeat. Even when the country forced the ruler to leave his beloved because she could not give birth to a child, he always returned to her. As one of the movie's slogans says, "The whole world for Josephine".

Her plans included affairs, which her husband must accept as part of her very complex character.

Spencer, dir. by Pablo Larraín (2021)

One of the most famous couples in the world is Prince Charles and Princess Diana.

The film reveals the hidden side of Christmas in these circles, where Diana feels like an outsider.
