Venice's audience "very welcoming" to Madonna's W.E.
“I was in Venice for the first time at the beginning of my career, singing ‘Like a Virgin’ on a gondola trying desperately to convince everyone that I was. At one point, I forgot to duck [hitting a bridge], and maybe I haven’t recovered yet.”
“I’m really pleased that the audience was very welcoming and attentive to the movie.”
New York Daily confirmed what Madonna said about the audience welcoming W.E. in an article saying that Madonna may not have charmed film critics with her second directorial effort, but her movie got a “10-minute standing ovation” from the crowd that saw the premiere of “W.E.”, in the “Sala Grande” on Thursday.
