Madonna’s New Film, W.E., Shows The Downside Of Fairy Tale Romances

 

Now that we’ve seen the trailer for Madonna‘s new historical drama, W.E., we’re finally sure it’s about King Edward VIII’s relationship with Wallis Simpson, and not just a thinly veiled roman à clef about her divorce from Guy Ritchie.

Though it got mixed reviews at the Venice Film Festival, W.E. is serious business, juxtaposing the famous couple’s story with that of Wally Winthrop, a young woman in 1998 who is obsessed with their  story, which she believes to be the greatest romance of all time.

Hmm, maybe Madonna faked that British accent all these years just to get this movie made?
