It's incredible to believe that this is the first major film Madonna has directed - and it's a real labour of love. 3 years have been spent making the movie and all the effort and hard work is right there in front of your eyes when you watch it.
An amazing story and stunning performances - particularly from Andrea Riseborough as Wallis Simpson.
The cinematography is a visual feast for the eyes and the costumes are wonderful. The piano led soundtrack is also another nice touch. I can still hear it playing in my ears now! It's ultimately a feminist statement about love and power. The entire production is stunning and Madonna's touch can be felt all over it.
