A lot better than I thought it would be. Telling the Edward/Simpson story inside another story was a good way to handle it. It gave Madonna the unique opportunity to tell it from the feminist side. Good choice. Her 2 women stars couldn't have found a better vehicle to showcase their talents. They were both terrific. I suppose the one downer was the way she fluffed the fascist side of the story. Better to have avoided it altogether than be obligated to tell the official distortions. That was offensive to anyone who knows the true history. None the less...she made it work...and finally put herself into the ranks of serious film makers. I will definitely see her next...

Mildly entertaining movie with a weak script and some missing motivations for the behavior of the protagonists. Nice look at the dress of the 30s upper class.

Definitely my favorite costumes in a film this year. Great art direction, and cast, had some really beautiful shots as well. The story had some loose ends, and I thought it could be edited better. But thought Madonna did a really great job on the whole, and it was a really beautiful film
