W.E.

Rock! Shock! Pop!
22 June 2012
  • Excerpt: The title stems from the initials of the main historical figures depicted in this film, namely Wallis “Wally” Sampson (Riseborough) and Prince Edward (D’Arcy) of Wales. The latter abdicated the throne of England for the former, an American divorcee, and was exiled from his home country as a result.

  • Summary: Even though W./E. has turned out to be one confusing piece of cinema, I feel Madonna has a great chance at directing a film worthy of my recommendation in the future. The film here had a ton of potential but it is mostly wasted on the modern day scenes with Wally and William.

High-Def Digest

  • Summary: The modern day portions of 'W./E.' belong in the W.C., but the historical sections focusing on the Duke and Duchess of Windsor and their rocky love affair are quite interesting and provide a glimmer of what a full-fledged biopic might have looked like. Unfortunately, the bulk of 'W./E.

W.E. Review

  • Excerpt: W.E. , essentially, tells the story of a grand real life fairy tale, wherein the common woman marries the king whom becomes so infatuated with her, he gives up the throne. Cue a sequel called The King’s Speech . Well, sort of.

  • Conclusion: Set aside any preconceived notions about a period Drama/Romance directed by a Pop legend, or take the name "Madonna" out of the equation entirely, and see that W.E. shows promise, that there's a fair picture -- or maybe two good ones -- to be enjoyed.

  • Excerpt: It’s easy to see what might have attracted writer-director Madonna (who has also been known to dabble in music) to the story of twice-divorced American-turned-Duchess-Of-Windsor Wallis Simpson, a woman of modest means who reached rarified heights of fame and infamy and inspired a constitutional...

The Digital Fix
26 January 2012
  • Excerpt: Considering the rough reception that greeted Madonna�s second outing as a film director at its opening in Venice, and the critical mauling the film has subsequently had on its release, it seems pointless to heap any further criticism on W.E.
