Set In 1998, lonely New York wife Wally Winthrop (Cornish) becomes obsessed with the auction of items belonging to her namesake — American socialite Wallis Simpson (Riseborough), whose scandalous love affair with Edward VIII, then King of England, rocked the world in the late 1930s.
An uneven study of a notorious love story, raised by some superb performances and nuances, but brought down by awkward direction.
