Liz & Dick: Elizabeth Taylor & Richard Burton Movie
The Love Life of Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton
Liz & Dick tells the rocky story of the love between Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton. The story was written by Christopher Monger and stars Lindsay Lohan as Elizabeth Taylor and Grant Bowler as Richard Burton and premired as a made-for-television movie on Lifetime on November 25, 2012.
Despite a story that still mesmerises people today, the movie was not so warmly received. I watched it and would have to agree with the majority of comments that it was not a very successful movie. However, if you are a big fan of either Taylor or Burton, you might want to give it a watch anyway...

- Lindsay Lohan in 'Liz & Dick': TV Review - Hollywood Reporter
It should come as no great surprise that Lifetime’sLiz & Dickmovie starring Lindsay Lohan is spectacularly bad. After all, it’s Lohan, more memorable in the tabloids than she ever was as an actress.
- Maureen Ryan: 'Liz and Dick' Review: Oh Lord, What Have They Done?
It's easy to come up with a list of a few things a movie about Elizabeth Taylor-Richard Burton should do. "Liz and Dick" does absolutely none of these things. All it really does is make you sad about what's become of Lindsay Lohan.

Lohan is now in the unenviable position of the classic cartoon character who dashes over the edge of the cliff and stays in midair, spinning her legs madly but not falling, and, of all things, the flimsy and inadequate platform called “Liz and Dick”

Rumours about a Martin Scorsese biopic film...
Furious Love: Elizabeth Taylor, Richard Burton and the Marriage of the Century, the 2010 book by Sam Kashner and Nancy Schoenberger, is about Elizabeth Taylor's scandalous affair and two tumultuous marriages to Richard Burton. Rumours have it that he story has been optioned by Paramount Pictures and movie director Martin Scorcese though those rumours are starting to seem old.
Elizabeth Taylor never authorized or really approved of any of the biographical books that were released about her life and career nor did she write a biography herself. She did, however, allow the authors of the book Furious Love to read the love letters that she exchanged with Richard Burton and Martin Scorsese has received approval from the required parties to do a biopic film about the legendry actors based on the contents of Furious Love.
