Madonna's 'W.E.' Premieres In The U.K.

Madonna premiered her new Royal Family film "W.E." in the UK on Wednesday at London's Odeon Kensington theater, discussing the message behind her film with an audience who counts the subject matter amongst its greatest national scandals.

"W.E.," starring Abbie Cornish, James D'Arcy, and Andrea Riseborough tells the story of Wally Winthrop, a woman living in New York City in the late 90's. Unlucky in love, she obsesses over King Edward VIII's decision to give up the throne for the woman he loved, seeing it as the most romantic story of all time.

"This movie shows that there is no such thing as perfect love, that all love requires compromise or sacrifice," she told The Mirror. "The other thing is that nothing is as it seems. You can look from the outside and think it's one thing but once you start investigating, it's something completely different. It's like a human being. What you thought of them on the first day is not what you think of them a year later."

The film, which travels across a century in its 2-hour running time, hits U.S. theaters on February 3. In the meantime, she's focusing on her music again -- the artist revealed the title of her 12th album is "M.D.N.A." yesterday, with the release date yet to be confirmed.
