After becoming a movie star at the age of just 12 in National Velvet, Dame Elizabeth Taylor emerged as a beacon of the Hollywood studio system. Taylor took on the eponymous role in the lavish production of Cleopatra and delivered an unforgettable Oscar-winning performance in Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? opposite her then husband Richard Burton. Known for an illustrious screen career, a succession of whirlwind marriages and her sterling charity work, this documentary celebrates the life of the late, great Elizabeth Taylor, with insights from commentators and colleagues, including director Franco Zeffirelli.
