W.E. Trailer Now Live

Madonna’s new film about the romance between Wallis Simpson and Edward VIII, W.E., is showing in cinemas soon. It looks like the film explores the radical new evidence that has come to light in recent years, namely a collection of private love letters between Wallis and her ex-husband (dated during her marriage to Edward), which form the thesis of Anne Sebba’s new biography That Woman: The Life of Wallis Simpson, Duchess of Windsor. Natalie Dormer, who starred as Anne Boleyn in The Tudors, plays a supporting role as Elizabeth, the wife of George VI and future Queen.
