The Playlist By Kevin Jagernauth | The Playlist April 25, 2012 at 3:29PM

There was perhaps no film as talked about or divisive in 2011 than Madonna's "W.E." It seems everyone had an opinion about the ambitious movie, which tackled romance, historical drama and more all at once in a tale that spanned two distinctly different time periods. And if you finally want to see what everyone was discussing, we've got some copies for some lucky readers.

W.E.

There was perhaps no film as talked about or divisive in 2011 than Madonna's "W.E." It seems everyone had an opinion about the ambitious movie, which tackled romance, historical drama and more all at once in a tale that spanned two distinctly different time periods. And if you finally want to see what everyone was discussing, we've got some copies for some lucky readers.

Starring Abbie Cornish, Andrea Riseborough, James D'Arcy and Oscar Isaac, the film kicks off in 1998, and Manhattan is abuzz with anticipation about the upcoming auction of the estate of the Duke and Duchess of Windsor. But the auction is far more than a diversion for Wally Winthrop (Cornish), a transplanted Southerner trapped in an unhappy and abusive marriage. Transfixed by the exquisite artifacts of the Windsors' lives, Wally becomes obsessed with the love story of Wallis Simspon (Riseborough), the chic, charismatic American who captured the heart of King Edward VIII (D'Arcy). As she learns more about the sacrifices Wallis made in choosing to be with Edward, Wally finds the courage to follow her own heart and create her own happiness.

How do you win? Email us with your name address and tell us the name of the actor originally offered the role of King Edward VII. Good luck! Update: Contest closed, winners will be contacted by email.

"W.E." is on DVD and Blu-ray right now. Contest open to U.S. residents only.
