The life and loves of the world’s most famous woman - of the late 20th century at least - have been transferred to the silver screen.

Naomi Watts dons stunning dresses, jewels and a winsome smile as she plays the tragic Princess Diana, for whom true love and happiness always seemed to be just a fingertip away.

‘Diana’ (12A) is based on the last two years of her life when, post-divorce from Prince Charles, she meets handsome heart surgeon Hasnat Khan (Naveen Andrews) and embarks on a secret love affair. Feeling fulfilled and with a sense of being loved and supported, it was at this time that she accomplished some of her most rewarding and successful humanitarian work.

‘Diana’ is screened at Hebden Bridge Picture House tomorrow until Monday (7.45pm) and on Thursday at 10.30am.

The weekend sees the return of ‘Justin & The Knights of Valour’ (PG, 1.30pm) and on Tuesday and next Thursday the Korean film ‘Pieta’ (18), winner of the Golden Lion at the 2012 Venice Film Festival, is screened at 7.45pm.

There’s a live treat on Wednesday as ‘Don Quixote’ (adv 12A) is broadcast live from the Royal Opera House, London (7.15pm, doors 6.15pm).

‘About Time’ (12A) is on today at 10.30am and 7.45pm.
