‘The Crown’ is a ‘cruel’ and ‘untrue’ portrayal of Princess Diana’s life: friend

story came to a close with the first part of Season 6 of “The Crown.” The first four episodes of the final season dropped earlier this month — and detailed her love affair with Egyptian billionaire Dodi Fayed (Khalid Abdalla), their untimely deaths and Dodi’s relationship with his father, Mohamed al-Fayed.However, the royal drama seems to be chock-full of historical inaccuracies — according to BBC correspondent and Mohamed’s onetime spokesman Michael Cole.Cole told the Sun how the show’s “malicious” scenes are hurtful to the reputations of the Princess of Wales (Elizabeth Debicki) and the film producer. The two died in a car crash in Paris in August 1997.Cole insisted that producers of the series did “not respect Diana” and that the show is “a travesty of the truth” and portrays the couple’s serious romance as a short rendezvous.“It’s the complete opposite [of the truth], and completely cruel, and unnecessarily so, and they’ve got it wrong, because … it’s drama,” he said, adding that Diana and Dodi were “in love.”Mohamed (Salim Daw) is presented as a matchmaker between his son and the princess, appearing as a villain trying to savagely get them together for his personal gain.But this was far from real life.

‘Napoleon’ conquers French box office despite vicious reviews
Napoleon has made a strong start at the French box office despite some scathing reviews from French critics.The film – which stars Joaquin Phoenix as the famed French emperor – has received largely positive reviews internationally, though some French critics have slated the film.French GQ called it “deeply clumsy, unnatural and unintentionally funny”, while Le Figaro compared it to “Barbie and Ken under the Empire”.Nevertheless, it took $1.019million (£810,000) during its opening day in France last week (via Variety) – accounting for nearly a third of international takings – before making a total $5.6million (£4.44million) over its first five days.Its weekend takings also make France one of the biggest international markets for Napoleon, second behind the UK with $6.6million (£5.23million), according to ScreenDaily.Last week, director Ridley Scott hit back at French critics of the film, telling the BBC: “The French don’t even like themselves”.He added: “The audience that I showed it to in Paris, they loved it.”Scott also previously hit back at historian Dan Snow’s criticism of the film, after the latter broke down Napoleon‘s historical inaccuracies.“Get a life,” the director said. “I tend to be visual above all things, before the written word.”Napoleon focuses on the emperor’s rise to power and his relationship with Empress Joséphine (Vanessa Kirby).
