This book offers some excellent insight into some of Elizabeth Taylor's best movies, and some of her lesser-known ones as well. I was expecting the analysis to be a little more intense, but this is a nice, easy read that points out how many of the roles Taylor played are of women who refuse to be victims, and who live life on their own terms. Representation matters, and Taylor represented strong, independent women in a period of history where such qualities in women were not only undervalued but strongly discouraged and even punished. It was fun to relive some of these movies through M.G. Lord's eyes. Be aware that the book is full of spoilers, though, so you may want to watch the movies first.
Great book. This is how I discovered James Dean, Taylor's research concerning AIDS, and some really cool movies like Giant.
