Trailer: W.E. – Madonna’s directorial debut

Andrea Riseborough and James D'Arcy star in a right royal romance from the former Queen of Pop


Fancy a sneak peek at Madonna’s first go at being a proper film director? Here you go then. 


W.E. jumps between the relationship of Wallis Simpson (Andrea Riseborough) and Edward VIII (James D’Arcy) – the king who gave up his throne for the woman he loved – and a modern-day romance between a married woman (Abbie Cornish) and a security guard (Oscar Isaac).

And if that isn’t enough to confuse you, the Material Girl seems to be having a lot of fun getting the camera to zoom in and out dramatically, and spin around and around.

W.E. is released in the UK on 20 January 2012.
