Director: Madonna
“ I don't think this movie is for everyone but I liked it. Although, I think it helped that I knew a bit about the story of Wallis and Edward to begin with. I recommend watching a movie about Edward & Mrs. Simpson before watching this. This movie is not shallow at all. In fact it is quite profound. There are 2 main characters - Wallis (past) and Wally (present). Wally is a woman in a bad relationship who was named after Wallis. She is obsessed with the story of Wallis & Edward as she desires the ultimate love that she thinks Wallis & Edward shared. The movie is very well filmed and the costumes, scenes and make up are a joy to look at. The actors do a great job. This is a sort of dreamlike artist film - it is not straight forward, fast-paced and doesn't have explosions. It is not the best film I have ever seen but is quite good. Even the special feature which includes Madonna was interesting. This is a story about love and life. Life is not perfect and neither is love. Another good artistic contribution from Madonna! Good job Madonna! :) ” - WingedCreature
