Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?
6:30pm - Wednesday, Jul 20, 2016
ï¿½What a dump.ï¿½
The real-life, volcanic passion between screen legends Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton stoke the flames of director Mike Nicholsï¿½ debut feature Whoï¿½s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?, adapted from Edward Albeeï¿½s play of the same name. An icon of American cinema, the film burns up the screen with brilliant dramatic performances and a script seething with scathing (if not sadistic) wit; its simple story of married couple George and Martha (Burton and Taylor) emotionally unraveling with their dinner guests (George Segal, Sandy Dennis) over a very alcohol-fueled conversation. Nominated for thirteen Oscars, the film won five, including Best Supporting Actress for Sandy Dennis and Best Actress for Taylor, who shines in a raw, frighteningly real performance that famously cast her legendary beauty to the side.
