Madonna tackles a celebrity love story with an interesting twist: we see it through the eyes of an ordinary person. It’s the story of England’s King Edward VIII, who abdicated the throne to marry divorcee Wallis Simpson. But it’s told in flashback, as their estate comes up for auction. The amusingly named Wally Winthrop becomes intrigued by the couple’s history, and filling in the blanks with her imagination proves a willing distraction from her own messy love life. The result: a look at ordinary people’s obsessions through a celebrity prism.
