- A lonely New yorker becomes obsessed with the story of King Edward VIII and his abdication of the British throne for American divorcee Wallis Simpson.
This movie was premiered at TIFF (Toronto International Film Festival) and received dreadful reviews. In essence called the worst movie ever made. That Madonna (Who wrote and directed the movie.) did a horrific job. The critics basically said DO NOT DO IT!!!
So, I watched it the other day. (LOL) I have to say that I was fully prepared to hate it. And after the first 20 minutes or so that it took me to figure out what was going on, I was surprised. Admittedly, it was very weird, but I was engaged in both of the stories told simultaneously through the movie. I'm not sure the critics of TIFF got this one right. And now that I know what is going on - I will be watching it at least a second time.
So I give this movie 3 bags of Popcorn!!
