Movie Info

Artist Laura Edwards (Elizabeth Taylor) prefers to home-school her son, Danny (Morgan Mason), but when the child welfare department intervenes and demands that the boy attend a proper educational institution, Laura bypasses public school in favor of an Episcopal boarding school run by minister Dr. Edward Hewitt (Richard Burton). Although married with kids, Hewitt develops an attraction to Laura, and the two begin an affair, but they're soon discovered by Hewitt's wife, Claire (Eva Marie Saint).

    beautiful locations, silly but entertaining story

    Lots of amazing scenery (Liz Taylor included.) The Sandpiper is also a precursor to the beginning of the ratings system as its a bit racy and liberal-minded for the mid-60s. Burton and Taylor are as always great together, Eva Marie Saint plays a WASP doormat and Charles Bronson plays a hipster beatnik. By no means essential and even though its a little drawn out, its not a bad watch.
