I got somewhat carried away by the film W.E. by Madonna. It’s about the love story between Wallis Simpson and Edward VIII the Prince of Wales. She was an American ‘commoner’ already married with her second husband, but eventually he abdicated the throne for her “because he could not bear to live without her at his side.” A beautiful touching story in itself and if you look at pictures of them they seem genuinely happy with each other. I thought the film was perfect in details like costume and decor, really beautifully done. The criticism Madonna received for making a ‘blah’ film therefore was somewhat ungrounded. I saw her talk about the film on Graham Norton and you could really tell it was a project near to her heart. It must be difficult to be Madonna knowing your films will receive particular attention. Anyway, see this film, it may not be a ten, but it’s a must-see nonetheless.
