Went to research screening of W.E tonight in NYC

Not an embarrassment for Madge but a lot of it has the look and feel of a Chanel No. 5 commercial. Some sequences are good, though. Cinematography is spectacular, as is the production design. Didn''t like the frocks for the most part, nothing stood out for me.%0D\ %0D\ Andrea Riseborough as Wallis is sensational-she could definitely be up for awards next year as Best Actress. Abbie Cornish is just not an interesting actress to watch and at times her resemblance to Lauren Graham is distracting. It''s never explained to us as to why she''s obsessed with Edward and Mrs. Simpson in the first place. Oscar Isaac is hot as a Russian security guard at Sotheby''s. Edward looks too much like both a fashion model. and also a Nazi. Speaking of which the movie makes it clear that they WEREN''T actually Nazi sympathizers-they chalk it down to rumor and hearsay.%0D\ %0D\ Not sure what the critics will say whenn this opens late this year. Madge might get something of a pass. Low expectations will certainly benefit her in this case.
