Dissatisfied with the way her own life is playing out, New York-based Wally Winthrop (Abbie Cornish) becomes obsessed with the romance between American divorcee Wallis Simpson (Andrea Riseborough) and England's Edward VIII (James D'Arcy) when Sotheby's holds an auction of the royal couple's belongings. Wally is especially drawn to Wallis' side of the story, and as certain events transpire in her life, the line between fantasy and reality begins to blur.

  • Here's Madge one more time doing something for which she is eminently unsuited – directing. show more

  • The director's apparent blindness to the epic banality of her subjects suggests that the whole project is one royally misguided mess. show more

  • Madonna the director deserves a script better than the one Madonna the screenwriter handed off to her. The movie is full of incidents that don't quite cohere into a story - kind of like a Power Point presentation without a throughline. show more

    The movie W.E. was one of the worst movies I have ever seen, worst than Ishtar and Waterworld. First of all the audio of the actors was all mumble....the film was filmed from strange angle and point of view so, often you saw only part of a scene and the scenes were cut short making it seem as though they either knew how bad the film was or the editor was on drugs. Madonna is talented but NOT for directing or writing any music. The score almost was no score and the jumping back and forth between the young abused and beaten up wife and her shrink sadistic husband and the King and or Prince and or Duke of Windsor and his adulterous gal pal....was headache producing. The only well done part of the film was the wardrobe and makeup person. If one is smart avoid this film at all costs.
