W.E. (2011) - Drama | History | Romance

W.E. (2011) - GOOD MOVIE

  "W.E." had one hell of an uphill battle. Not only is it a period piece, but the film is also written and directed by the one woman in the world that makes people pass judgement before even experiencing her work. That woman is Madonna.
  This film tells the story of Wallis Simpson and Edward, Prince of Wales who gave up his place as King of England to be with the woman he loved. It is one of those modern day fairy tales, we love. The juxtaposition of a parallel love story adds a new element to the Wallis/Edward story. Wallis, our heroine, named after Wallis Simpson uses that connection to help her explore the Wallis/Edward story and answer questions she has about her own life and marriage. I think Madonna has done a credible job writing this film. I recommend you see this film and enjoy the fairy tale.
