Madonna's stamp is on this drama as its director, as it explores the history-shaking relationship of King Edward VIII (James D'Arcy) and Wallis Simpson (Andrea Riseborough), as a contemporary woman (Abbie Cornish) finds letters that detail the famous, then-controversial romance.
What happens in their case has a profound effect on her view of whether true love genuinely is possible. Co-stars include Oscar Isaac, James Fox and Judy Parfitt. The song "Masterpiece" earned a Golden Globe award. DVD extra: "making-of" documentary. *** (R: N, P, V) (Also on Blu-ray and Movies on Demand)Copyright © 2014, The Baltimore Sun
