Liz and Dick: A true Hollywood story
Recently I sat down with a friend to watch Lifetime’s newest dramatic documentary about Hollywood
legends Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton. Not knowing a great deal about either one of them, I
found myself in complete awe as I watched their lives played out on the screen. Elizabeth Taylor, known
for her style and extravagance finds herself being admired and sometimes chased by fellow actor and
legend Richard Burton.
Watching this incredibly dysfunctional tale unfold, I cannot help but think about the similarities of Taylor
and the actress who plays her in the movie; Lindsay Lohan. Lohan, known for her extravagance and
outlandish behavior nails the part of Taylor with perfection. Watching her one could easily forget that
she is acting. Grant Bowler, who portrays Burton, does an outstanding job playing the part of suitor,
aggressor, bad boy of the big screen.
Liz and Dick is filled with love, lust and betrayal; a real Hollywood story brought to life by Lifetime.
Watch Liz and Dick on Lifetime Sunday November 25 at 9:00 p.m.
“Liz & Dick” premieres TONIGHT at 9/8c! People.com says: “Lohan attacks the part with a relentless, huffing-and-puffing determination that rivets attention – it’s an approach not much different from Taylor’s own performances.” RSVP to our premiere event, and tweet LIVE with Lindsay Lohan (@lindsaylohan) during the movie!
