Directed by Mike Nichols. Starring Elizabeth Taylor, Richard Burton, George Segal, Sandy Dennis. “One literate and profane night in the pathological marriage of two tortured souls, a middle-aged New England professor and his carping wife. Turning the underbelly of bourgeois academia into a microcosm of human relationships in all their arduous complexities, it's a harrowing descent into the private lives and painful secrets of two couples thrown together for an evening. George is an associate professor of history who has turned to alcohol to deal with his vituperative, vicious wife Martha, whose appetite for administering abuse knows no bounds.” – IMDb.com. Elizabeth Taylor delivers a stunning portrait of a woman lost in the pathos of what might have been. 131 minutes. Not rated.
