Critic Reviews for Burton And Taylor

All Critics (12) | Top Critics (8) | Fresh (12)

  • Bonham Carter has a firm hand on a fundamental conflict within Taylor, which is that she seems like such an impossibly elegant, self-possessed woman at some moments and like such an infuriating flake at others.

  • Bonham Carter offers up a sympathetic Liz who is in the process of squandering her talent; West makes Burton's brokenness seem like a noble resignation. And both seem surprised that each other's company is no longer the cure for what ails them.

  • It's a film that asks a lot from West and Bonham Carter, who deliver time and again in roles that could have eaten them alive. Instead we feast.

  • Not only does it capture the essence of the two outsize icons of film and scandal, it also brings them in for a humanizing close-up.

  • BBC America is here to set the universe right again with its love/hate story about Hollywood's hot mess of a couple.

    October 18, 2013 | Rating: 3.5/4
  • Excellent actors playing excellent actors -- and largely succeeding.
