"W.E." had one hell of an uphill battle. Not only is it a period piece,but the film is also written and directed by the one woman in the worldthat makes people pass judgement before even experiencing her work.That woman is Madonna.

The film tells the tale of the infamously scandalous affair of KingEdward VIII (aka David) and Wallis Simpson for whom, in the 1930s, hegave up everything for, even abdicating the throne of England. Being atwice-divorced American, Wallis Simpson was a woman the monarchy wouldnever accept, and because of that, David left everything behind forlove. The film concurrently takes us back to 1998 and Wally Winsthrop,a woman who was named after Ms. Simpson by her Wallis-obsessed motherand who also finds herself in a marriage that is not living up to themagic she expected it to be, a fact which is brought more to life bythe flirtations of a Russian security guard she encounters at anauction of the Windsor Estate at Sotheby's.

I can honestly say that, despite being an enormous fan of most ofMadonna's artistic endeavours, I was not sure how this film would playout. But you know what? It's a good film. First of all, it takes theperspective of Wallis Simpson in telling the first story, which goesagainst the norm. Secondly, the interweaving of the two completelydifferent time periods is extremely well done, incredibly edited, andmanages to keeps you invested in both stories equally. And mostsurprisingly, it was an entertaining history lesson: Not only do youlearn of this hugely publicized affair but the film, in a way, isalmost like a prequel to last year's powerhouse, "The King's Speech,"as that film focuses on Bertie, David's brother, who had to take overthe throne once David renounced it.

The film is not perfect, but as Madonna's second attempt at directing,you have to give her credit. Something many critics just refuse to do.No, the script is far from genius, but it's far from awful. The film isvisually beautiful to watch and the integration of regular filming anddocumentary-style graininess makes for an interesting watch. Then thereis the exquisite costumes for which this film is nominated for anAcademy Award...and has a good chance at winning. And the performances,all of which are good. Andrea Risborough ("Made in Dagenham," "Happy GoLucky") gives a strong turn, if not slightly off kilter at times, asWallis Simpson. James D'Arcy is at times whimsical yet stoic as theterribly handsome King Edward. Abbie Cornish ("Limitless") is close toheartbreaking as the suffering Wally Winthrop and Richard Coyle("Prince of Persia") gives a great performance as Wally's emotionallyabsent husband. And then there is Oscar Isaac, also in theOscar-nominated "Drive," as the incredibly handsome and sweet Russianwho perks up each time Wally is around.

No, "W.E." is not brilliant, but it's far better than you might expect,Madonna proving to be a far better director than anyone might give hercredit for. And if you just love her for her music, the Golden-Globewinning "Masterpiece" plays along the closing credits. Although I havealways preferred her musical endeavours over her cinematic attempts,this attempt is one she can definitely be proud of.

I am not a fan of Madonna, her music and previous film stints do not doit for me.But I bear the greatest respect for her, she has gone whereangels fear to tread,she is a pioneer of women, and she makes me proudto be one. I do not understand why this movie got such bad reviews. Ifound it well directed, casted and filmed. It is wildly romantic andthoroughly worth your time. The costumes are stunning and the dialogueintriguing. Perhaps all the reviewers with negative comments were male?It has happened before, but this is no "chick flick". My husband reallyenjoyed it also. Well he is in touch with his feminine side, but likeMadonna he has balls the size of butternuts

Having finally opened in the UK, I've now had the opportunity to watch'W.E.', having followed its coverage to this point with interest. Ican't, in all honestly, say that this is a good movie. I'll back thecommon positives and reiterate that it looks amazing and AndreaRiseborough is wonderful in it. The score, while lovely, is over-powering at times - Madonna is obviously terrified of silence!

I went with the movie quite happily for the first hour. The Wallis andEdward scenes are effective (I thought the dizzying/choppy camera workworked really well contrasting with the vintage images) and reminded mequite a bit of Stephen Fry's movie "Bright Young Things". But they hadabsolutely zero dramatic tension. Largely, this was due to the factthat they weren't chronological, but also it was because (to my horror)they almost seemed there to serve the modern day story, rather thanvice versa.

And as for those modern day parts ... well ... Firstly, I'll say that Ididn't think the concept was bad and it had potential. However, theyneeded to be trimmed by about three quarters. Christ, did they ever goon. The dialogue was serviceable, at best, and toe-curling at worst.The character of Wally was about as engaging as a paper clip and thatwas largely due to Abby Cornish's lifeless performance. Honestly, Iwanted to scream at the screen, "Stop whispering all the time and TALK,woman!" That said, if the movie had only cut to these scenes every sooften and used them as well-timed interjections, rather than as a storyworthy of screen time in their own right, it would have been morebearable.

The film really lost me in the second hour when I realised it had usedup all its party tricks and it was obvious where it was going. (And,no, I don't mean the Wallis/Edward story arch, but how it was going tocontrast the two tales, and what the oh-so-obvious climax was going tobe.) By the end, I couldn't wait for it to finish.

There are some lovely scenes, though, and several nice touchesthroughout. But while the infamous 'Pretty Vacant' sequence is probablytrying to say profound things about Wallis having a punk spirit, itfeels rather out of place. (It's fun, though, I'll give it that.)

So, really, it's nowhere near the one star disaster many are claiming.And I, genuinely, can't see why anyone could charge it would be, otherthan to appear 'cool' to knock Madge. It's got too much going for it,for that.

But the reason I said 'semi-noble failure' is because, while I think ithad some ambition, it's indulgent to a fault. At least twenty minutesof this movie are taken up by Abby Cornish wandering around Sothebys,exchanging in vacant platitudes with the Russian security guard, orlooking blandly at something we're told should be exciting by thevolume of the score. And, I guess, the blame for including suchnon-interesting stuff must lie with the movie's director.
