1.0 out of 5 stars So, the whole plot centres around the death of George V and the next king...., 3 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: W.E. [DVD] (DVD)
but, when he dies, the soundtrack talks about the 'death of George the Third' !!!

WHAT?? You are making a film about Edward VIII and the importance of the fact that there was an unexpected George the 6th and you don't get the name of the deceased monarch correct?

That just about sums up the qualit of this movie. It is beautfully shot, the clothes are lovely, but the twin time stories thingjust does NOT work at all. The woman who plays Wallis is very good, it is a really polished performance. Sadly the rest of them are pants.

The story is jumbled and disjointed. There is an unnecessary romance with a Russian (lovely looking, I grant you that, Madonna) security guard which has nothing to do with anything much.

This could have been a good film in the right hands, Sadly it was in the wrong hands......
