Wally becomes obsessed by their historic love story. As she learns more about the sacrifices involved, Wally gains her own courage to find happiness.Written by
Wallis Simpson was a patron of the Paris couture house of Madeleine Vionnet in the 1930's. Her original orders are still held in the company's archives, and recreations of four of those gowns were made by the fashion house for this film. See more »

I am on the "this movie sucks" team. I got to see it in Canada and what a pile of steaming diaper pudding it is. What happened to the Madonna we used to know? This is about as cutting edge and daring as Wonder Bread. It was like a 1930's fashion, makeup, and hairdo show, not a story or movie. And the "Julie & Julia" copycat storyline? Very original, Madge. Maybe you'll do an original novel for us next, something like "Wars & Pieces"? Snaps to the camera work and earlier mentioned wardrobe, makeup, and hair folks. The actors do the best they can at making chicken s**t into chicken salad. I read a bunch of actors bailed on this project early on. I wonder what they think about this?
