Bit of a snooze considering the larger-than-lifers involved, but ..., 17 October 2013
Author: pw820 from United States

... among those real lives -- that were so publicly replete with drama, drink, drugs, fame, fortune, travel, stage & screen, luxury, lust, affairs, and marriages (whew!) -- the movie has an appeal.

Partly, as a chance to catch a slowed-down glimpse into just one period of their lives.

Mostly, though, to experience Helena Bonham Carter's sublime performance as well as that of Dominic West. Their voices and mannerisms were spot-on.

I read that Helena was terrified to play the part of Elizabeth Taylor (understandable). But it seems then that fear is her muse because she was, quite simply, remarkable.

I wonder if Hollywood could tap her again for another Liz movie. There's certainly enough material for a series...
