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.

  • Conclusion: How fitting that the world's collective response to Madonna's W./E. was precisely what the title translates to in Internet slang.

  • 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.

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.
