Storyline

The story of Elizabeth Taylor's rise to stardom, beginning in Los Angeles 1942. Her dominating mother has decided that her daughter must become a star - no matter what others or Elizabeth herself think. Assisted by Hedda Hopper, she gets a part in Lassie Come Home (1943). She becomes a child star, raised by her studio. Growing up, she has several love-affairs - and several divorces, since her husbands can't accept being married to a Hollywood icon. Written by Mattias Thuresson

User Reviews

A mediocre attempt to tell Elizabeth Taylor's life
2 December 2002 | by EsmollinSee all my reviews

While I found this film watchable and at times interesting, it jumped so quickly from year to year at some points, it was obvious that they glossed over things. Fenn's acting is credible but 'Richard Burton' made me cringe. His accent was affected and he sounded silly while trying to sound profound. I wish the film would have probed a bit more beyond the Hollywood cliche of the lonely star.
