The queen of pop, Madonna, attended the UK premiere of her debut movie W.E along with the lead actors James D’Arcy and Andrea Riseborough. The premiere of W.E was held in UK on Wednesday at the London’s Odeon Kensington theatre where hundreds of her fans turned up to see her.
The pop star turned director, co-writer and co-producer wore a black Jean Paul Gaultier gown with a black feathered Dolce Gabbana cape at the premiere. Like anyone else starting a new job, Madonna too said that she was super nervous at the premiere of her film.
Madonna discussed the message behind her movie which is about a relationship between Edward VIII and Wallis Simpson. The subject of the movie has been considered one of the most scandalous in the history of England. The movie revolves around two love stories knitted together, one of a royal romance and the other of a modern-day woman entangled in a complicated relationship. It shows about the concept of true love and how it is rather based on compromises and sacrifices.
Madonna has presented the story as a modern day fairy-tale of a king who sacrifices an empire for a woman.
Madonna had been spending a lot of time with writing and directing this movie for two year that she almost immersed herself in the life of Simpson. She has made a lot of movie but is yet to impress the critics as a director.
James D’Arcy and Andrea Riseborough who stars as Edward VIII and Wallis Simpson in the movie were all praises for Madonna at the UK premiere. When asked about her personal opinion about love, Madonna expressed it as the most important thing in life.
The movie W.E is hitting the theatres on 20th January in UK and on the 3rd of February in US.
