Madonna works on 'W.E.'

Madonna said she hopes her movie, which parallels the British love story with that of a modern-day American, will find its audience among women, who may relate to contemporary Wally's naive fantasies about Wallis Simpson's life, and the strength she draws from learning the more complex story. "There's three love stories in the film: There's Edward and Wallis, the blossoming love story between Wally and [security guard] Evgeni, and there's the love affair between the two women," she said. "It's an important mythological story to tell ... of a woman helping another woman. I don't think it's something that we see very often in films. Mostly, we see women sabotaging other women."
