W./E.

W./E.

In Madonna’s directorial debut, W.E. depicts the infamous love affair between Wallis Simpson (Andrea Riseborough) and King Edward VIII (James D’Arcy)… the love affair that saw the King abdicate his throne.

The film focuses on the year 1998, where Manhattan is abuzz with anticipation about the upcoming auction of the estate of the Duke and Duchess of Windsor.  However the auction is far more than a diversion for Wally Winthrop (Abbie Cornish), a transplanted Southerner trapped in an unhappy and abusive marriage.

Transfixed by the exquisite artifacts of the Windsors’ lives, Wally becomes obsessed with the love story of Wallis Simpson, the chic, charismatic American who captured the heart of King Edward VIII. As she learns more about the sacrifices Wallis made in choosing to be with Edward, Wally finds the courage to follow her own heart and create her own happiness.

W./E. is out on DVD in the UK Monday 4 June, 2012. Check out the trailer:
