Bonham Carter has a firm hand on a fundamental conflict within Taylor, which is that she seems like such an impossibly elegant, self-possessed woman at some moments and like such an infuriating flake at others.

Not only does it capture the essence of the two outsize icons of film and scandal, it also brings them in for a humanizing close-up.

Burton and Taylor succeeds thanks to its truncated timeline and intimate feel.
