WIN: W.E.: The Original Motion Picture Soundtrack, Including Madonna’s Award-Winning “Masterpiece”!

The Weinstein Company presents W.E.,  the story of two fragile but determined women—Wally Winthrop and Wallis Simpson—separated by more than six decades. In 1998, lonely New Yorker Wally Winthrop (Abbie Cornish) is obsessed with what she perceives as the ultimate love story: King Edward’s VIII’s abdication of the British throne for the woman he loved, American divorcée Wallis Simpson.

But Wally’s research, including several visits to the Sotheby’s auction of the Windsor Estate, reveals that the couple’s life together was not as perfect as she thought. Weaving back and forth in time, W.E. intertwines Wally’s journey of discovery in New York with the story of Wallis (Andrea Riseborough) and Edward (James D’Arcy), from the glamorous early days of their romance to the slow unraveling of their lives in the decades that followed.

Nominated for an Academy Award for Best Costumes, W.E. doesn’t hit theaters until February 3 (you can watch the trailer here), but the soundtrack will be available January 31. And we’ve got your chance to get a piece of both!

Five lucky winners will win a W.E. movie mini-poster and a digital version of W.E.: The Original Motion Picture Soundtrack, featuring Madonna’s brand new track “Masterpiece”—winner of the 2012 Golden Globe Award for Best Original Song—and a score by Abel Korzeniowski. (Available January 31).

How do you win?

It’s easy, just answer this simple question:

Who was the most romantic couple—gay or straight—of the 20th century?

Provide your answers (and your email address so we can contact you if you’ve won), in the comments below.

This contest officially ends January 31 at 8pm. Winners will be notified by email by Thursday, February 2. No purchase is required.

      I don’t understand why anyone would romanticize Wallis Simpson. She was a social climbing, Nazi sympathizer. The only reason Mrs. Simpson was even remotely interested in Edward VII is because he was going to be King of England. She didn’t love him as much as she loved the idea of being an American queen. And when he abdicated the throne for her, she had no choice but to marry him or be shunned by society as well as the rest of the world. Wallis Simpson is NOT a woman to be admired. But then again maybe that is what “W.E.” is really about. This review on Queerty is the closest I’ve read to a summary of the movie.

      @ChiGuy76: Amen. I guess if Madonna makes a movie about how wonderful Hitler was all her stupid gay followers would become overnight Hitler fans.

      @ChiGuy76: the reason why she was a nazi sympathizer was because hitler promised to put her on the throne!

      Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton. At least that’s who Hollywood would lead us to believe. They have my vote.

      Cary Grant and Randolph Scott. The photos of them when they shared a house communicate the epitome of 1930s Hollywood Glamour. We may never know if they were lovers, but there is an intimacy and bond in those photos that is a romantic ideal.

      The most romantic couple of the century? Brangelina. Yes, you can laugh at me. But they are the first couple that comes to my mind when I hear the words romance and celebrity. The fact that they both are avid supporters of marriage equality and refuse to marry until the right to marry is given to gay people as well just makes me love them more.
