W.E. tells the love story of King Edward VIII with American divorcée, Wallis Simpson in parallel with a contemporary romance between a recently separated woman, Wally and a Russian security guard. Wally becomes obsessed with what she perceives as the ultimate love story: King Edward VIII’s abdication of the throne of the UK for the woman he loved. This is the first major film Madonna directed and her touch can be felt all over it. An amazing story of love, betrayal, aspirations, yearnings, with stunning performances – particularly from Andrea Riseborough as Wallis Simpson. Great soundtrack features names as Abel Korzeniowski, Henry Mancini, George Gershwin, Billie Holiday, Roberto Alagna, Sex pistols.
