Sunday night, the Cinema Society & Piaget screened Madonna’s film, W.E., at the Museum of Modern Art and Madonna had no qualms with politely putting a rude reporter in their place. When asked why she thought she could direct a movie, Madonna replied with this: “Well, I’ve been on a few film sets in my day and I’ve been married to a few directors, so I’ve picked up some tips along the way.” Classy way out of that question, M!
W.E. tells the tale of Wally Winthrop (Abbie Cornish), a woman obsessed with the love story of King Edward VIII (James D’Arcy) and Wallis Simpson (Andrea Riseborough). On Wally’s own journey, she begins to realize that everything wasn’t as heavenly romantic as she once thought between Edward and Wallis. Watch the trailer below.
W.E. will get a limited release in New York and Los Angeles starting this weekend before being widely released in February. It has also now been confirmed that Madonna will perform at the Super Bowl just days before her film gets released. That will most definitely shine a glaringly bright spotlight on the film’s release. Good timing, Madge!
