Madonna has been touted for Oscar success with her debut feature film 'W.E.'.

The 52-year-old singer has directed the movie - a two-tier tale about Britain's King Edward VIII's relationship with American Wallis Simpson and a modern story regarding a woman called Wally Simpson - and while many are expecting it to fail, music producer William Orbit says people will be surprised by how good it is.

William - who has worked with Madonna on the soundtrack for the movie - said: "I've done two pieces of score music for the film.

"It's hard to describe but they're quite moody as they come at pivotal moment during the romance. I've watched the film several times and it's really good.

"It's definitely Oscar-worthy and I'm not just saying that. I wouldn't comment on her past acting abilities so you know by me saying what I have that it's really a great film. I definitely think Madonna could be up for an Oscar for Best Director."

William says Madonna - who will debut the film at the Venice Film Festival in September - is great working with people even though can be quite "autocratic".

He told Deanpiper.com: "She has a very good eye and a great way with people. I'm not saying anything new by revealing she's autocratic but as long as people share the same vision then it works and this film really does."
