As we’ve mentioned before, W.E., Madonna’s award winning directorial “debut” will be released on Tuesday, May 1 in the US on both DVD and Blu Ray combo pack. Having seen the film quite a few times we definitely recommend picking up a copy
Madonna’s W.E. is a beautifully crafted, passionate tale about the search for true love in the modern world, viewed through the prism of one of history’s most fabled romances. The year is 1998, & Manhattan is abuzz with anticipation about the upcoming auction of the estate of the Duke & Duchess of Windsor. But the auction is far more than a diversion for Wally Winthrop (Abbie Cornish), a transplanted Southerner trapped in an unhappy & abusive marriage. Transfixed by the exquisite artifacts of the Windsors’ lives, Wally becomes obsessed with the love story of Wallis Simspon (Andrea Riseborough), the chic, charismatic American who captured the heart of King Edward VIII (James D’Arcy). As she learns more about the sacrifices Wallis made in choosing to be with Edward, Wally finds the courage to follow her own heart & create her own happiness.
W.E. is available for pre-order via Amazon.com
