Guy Ritchie might feel a bit threatened today. Madonna started directing her second movie called W.E. and it actually sounds fascinating and very appealing to women. Abbie Cornish stars as a young unhappily married New Yorker in 1998 who becomes obsessed with the 60 year old “romance of the century” – the Duke and Duchess of Windsor. King Edward VIII had only been on the throne for a few months when he abdicated to marry his divorced love, American socialite Wallis Simpson and the scandalous couple were given the Duke and Duchess titles. The world was captivated by this romance. Abbie Cornish’s character attends an auction of the Windsor’s valuables and finds unexpected romance of her own. Surprisingly, Madonna and her old “Truth or Dare” director Alek Kesheshian cowrote the script, and they have some powerful producers.
