The Madonna-directed W.E. tells the story of two women separated by more than six decades of history. The first, Wally Winthrop (Abbie Cornish) is obsessed with what she sees as the ultimate love story: Britain’s King Edward VIII’s abdication of the British throne for the woman he loved, American divorcee Wallis Simpson. W.E. switches between Wally in 1998 and Wallis in the 1930s.
W.E. will see a limited release on February 3, 2012.
