Is Madonna’s New Film Really About Her Divorce From Guy Ritchie?

Madonna is so excited about directing her second film that she has already released a trailer even though she’s still editing it.

Madonna’s film W.E. examines the obsession of an unhappily married woman named Wally. Wally learns that in 1936 King Edward VIII abdicated his throne to wed the already-married Mrs. Wallis Simpson. She then longs for her own storybook affair. But as she discovers more about Simpson and Edward’s rocky relationship, her own extra-marital affair threatens to turn into potential heartbreak.

Madonna said of her first film, the romantic Gypsy-rock dramedy Filth and Wisdom, “The fact of the matter is that all the work I do is very autobiographical, directly or indirectly, because who do I know better than me?”

So should we assume that W.E. is just Madonna’s thinly veiled retelling of her divorce with English director Guy Ritchie? After all, Ritchie’s like a monarch among action filmmakers, right?

      Madge is the most shallow, self-absorbed pop star in the world.

      Her favorite subject has always been herself. She has the emotional maturity of a 14 year old girl. Not very attractive on a 54-year woman.

      As a brit i’m curious about this film…..their is a cult of infamy surrounding the
      Duchess….I’m curious to know if they are going to touch on the fact that the Duchess
      (and Edward for that matter) were Nazi sympathizers.

      @christopher di spirito: How exactly does she have the emmotional maturity of a 14 year old girl? What does that even mean, and how would you even know?…What any of that has to do with this film is also baffling,.

      It’s great to know some things never change, like Queerty never fact checking. That’s not the official trailer. It’s footage that was shown back in Febuary to distributors interested in the film. W.E. has nothing to do with her marriage to Guy Ritchie, and it’s already been edited and shown at two major film festivals, Toronto and Venice.

      Most art, music, paintings movies etc. is somewhat autobiographical. I don’t see how being influenced by her own life makes Madonna immature. If so, then so are most artists. You have to write about what you know and what you’ve experienced. Any writing course will tell you that.
