Win Tickets to W.E. at the London Film Festival

Win a pair of tickets to see Madonna’s already controversial costume fest W.E. showing on 23rd October courtesy of lovely Jameson, ‘Official Spirit of the BFI London Film Festival’.

W.E. (directed and co-scripted by Madonna) tells a parallel story of two women, Wally Winthrop (Abbie Cornish) and Wallis Simpson (Andrea Riseborough) separated by sixty years of history. Wally is obsessed by the idea of Wallis’ perfect relationship with Edward (James D’Arcy). Subsequent to Edward’s abdication of the British throne, Wally considers this the greatest sacrifice for love in history. However, as Wally delves deeper into the past she discovers that their life together was not the fairytale romance she thought. W.E. weaves back and forward in time from Wally’s enquiries in 1998 to the 1930s covering the sensational courtship of Wallis and Edward then the dark days that eventually followed.

Thanks to Jameson, you and a friend can see W.E. at the BFI London Film Festival for FREE. While in town do check out ‘The Jameson Apartment’, a specially recreated 1920s speakeasy. There you can sip cocktails made by mixologist Ed McAvoy and watch twenties era cinema while strumming your fingers to the gramophone. The Jameson Apartment is situated at 39 Greek Street, Soho and open during 12 – 27th October from 5.30 pm – late. For more details and your secret password to get in (you will need this) check out the Jameson Cult Film Club Facebook page.
