Where to Watch 






Superstar Madonna apparently is in love with stories involving royalty and scandal and when the two combine in real life that always makes for an interesting telling, even if can only be whispered about as was the case way back when in 1936. King Edward VIII was the reigning King of England when he fell in love with Wallis Simpson, an American divorcee. He even gave up his throne for love when their affair became known to the public. Although Madonna has received plenty of scathing reviews for her directing of W.E., she apparently had enough happy critics to warrant such comments as "better than expected". In other words, the "Like a Virgin" star was bound to be poorly received no matter how good her efforts. ally Winthrop finds herself obsessed by the romance of the century and now, six decades later, she researches the ill-fated romance between a commoner and British royalty and the film flashes back and forth between decades through visits to the famous Sotheby's auction house. Starring Abbie Cornish (Elizabeth: The Golden Age, Bright Star) is Wally Winthrop, Andrea Riseborough (Made in Dagenham, Never Let Me Go) portrays Wallis Simpson, and as King Edward VIII James D'Arcy from Into The Storm, An American Haunting. Consider this a period piece that's also a costume piece with style and flair!
