Movie: Mrs. Burton Portrays Mrs. Burton

Well, that’s a little bit of a stretch, since Helena Bonham Carter is the partner, not the wife, of director Tim Burton. But Helena is playing Elizabeth Taylor, otherwise known as the wife (twice!) of Richard Burton on TV. The BBC flick is called “Burton and Taylor,” and costars Dominic West. The movie is set in 1983 and focuses on Taylor and Burton’s Broadway revival of Noel Coward’s “Private Lives.” (I saw it; I thought I’d never laugh again.) The new movie has gotta be better than the Lindsay-Lohan-as-Liz debacle.
