Burton and Taylor

About the Film

BAFTA award-winning actors Dominic West and Helena Bonham Carter star as Richard Burton and Elizabeth Taylor – Hollywood’s most volatile on-again-off-again lovers who famously played out every high and low of their love affairs, multiple marriages and divorces in the public eye. Burton and Taylor made their last stage appearance together in the critically reviled 1983 revival of Noel Coward’s stage play, Private Lives. This is the story of their ill-fated reunion, on and off stage. Directed by Richard Laxton.
