Storyline

On the set of Cleopatra, Hollywood's most beautiful star, Elizabeth Taylor, fell into the arms of one of the world's greatest actors, Richard Burton - and she didn't leave. Their subsequent white-hot, scandalous love affair gave rise to the paparazzi and they became the most hunted and photographed couple on earth. Their rocky, passionate, relationship, born in front of the cameras, was subsequently captured in a series of films, including The V.I.P.s and Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? The last of the great, extravagant stars, flaunting diamonds, yachts and private planes, they continually seized the headlines. They even divorced and married again - only to divorce again - but remain in each other's hearts. This Elizabeth Taylor - Richard Burton story is a no-holds barred account of their undying, but impossible love. Written by Larry A. Thompson Productions, Inc.

Goofs

While listening to a live radio broadcast of the 1967 Oscars awards the year Taylor and Burton were nominated for Who's Afraid Of Virginia Woolf?, a woman announces Elizabeth Taylor as Best Actress, followed by a man who announces Best Actor as Paul Scofield. In reality, the Best Actor winner was announced first--by previous year's Best Actress winner Julie Christie, while Taylor's victory was announced immediately afterward by previous year's Best Oscar nominee Lee Marvin.

Do they give awards for lousy casting?
9 April 2014 | by irishmSee all my reviews

I had no expectations; I had an evening to kill and was morbidly curious, so I can't say I was disappointed.

Lindsay Lohan was absolutely awful. I'm not a fan of either hers or Taylor's, so it wasn't even a question of her doing a bad job portraying an actress I admire... she was just terrible, period. Totally unconvincing, with none of Taylor's presence and class. The guy who played Burton was quite good, I thought, but Lohan sank the whole ship with the both of them on it.

Didn't really like the inter-cuts either, with "Liz" and "Dick" sitting in director's chairs chatting about their past to the camera, breaking the fourth wall. Awkward and odd structure that didn't really work.

As I said, I wasn't disappointed because I had no expectations of seeing a good biopic, but anybody looking for a convincing portrayal of Elizabeth Taylor definitely will be. Avoid unless you like train wrecks. Hope young "Dick" gets out of this one with his career intact; he's got potential.
