Madonna (yes, that one) was so fascinated by the story of Wallis Simpson and King George that she brought the story to the screen again. The plotline follows two different women, one an abused modern woman, the other Wallis, as they lead parallel lives trying to make their relationships work when it seems that the whole world is against them.
