Madonna's second film as director focuses on the affair between King Edward VIII and American divorcée Wallis Simpson and parallels the story with a contemporary tryst between a married woman a Russian security guard. Flatly acted and stiffly structured, the film's brazenly sumptuous look and gorgeous costumes give it a substantial entertainment value, even if the results are patchy.
