In 1936, the British Empire was flung into a constitutional crisis when King-Emperor Edward VIII proposed to marry Wallis Simpson, an American socialite. As head of the Church of England, Edward was held to strict legal and moral standard and objections were raised to marrying a woman whose ex-spouses were still alive. Wallis Edward portrays the shocking and epic romance of the man who would give up the world for the woman he loved. Starring Joely Richardson (The Tudors, Nip/Tuck). CC Available.
