Wondering why times are missing?

W.E.

It's not hard to see why faux Brit Madonna got obsessed with the story of King Edward VIII, who gave up the throne to marry American divorcée Wallis Simpson. But as a writer and a director, Madge is surprisingly dull. There's little excitement in this tedious costume drama. For some reason, MDNA throws in a parallel story, set in modern day, about a woman obsessed with the former royal family, who's falling in love with a security guard at Sotheby's. Occasionally, for no discernible reason, the story lines cross over. The costumes are nice, though. 119 minutes R.
