Madonna Premieres W.E. At The Venice Film Festival

Madonna has premiered her film W.E. at the Venice Film Festival. The singer looked fantastic in a colorful custom-made Vionnet gown when she arrived at the red carpet for the premiere. Abbie Cornish and Andrea Riseborough, who star in the film, also walked the red carpet in Italy

Madonna’s film which focuses on the relationship between King Edward VIII and the divorced American Wallis Simpson has received mixed reviews,


The reviews range from absolutely scathing to warmly positive. Ian Brooks of The Guardian ripped the film, giving it one out of five stars and lamenting that Simpson was “defiled, humiliated, made to look like a joke.” Many critics expressed frustration at the film’s visually arresting style yet perceived lack of substance. Variety’s Leslie Felperin noted that “Madonna’s sophomore feature doesn’t have much going for it apart from lavish production design and terrific, well-researched costumes” while Todd McCarthy of The Hollywood Reporter admitted, “W.E. is as easy on the eyes and ears as it is embalmed from any dramatic point of view.”

But not all critics disliked the film. David Gritten of The Telegraph was pleasantly surprised, noting that “W.E. is rather better than expected; it’s bold, confident and not without amusing moments.” Baz Bamigboye was even more cheery in The Daily Mail, challenging those who hated the film that “if they were to watch it with no knowledge of who directed, they would be pleasantly surprised. They might even find much of it enjoyable.”
