I read (and enjoyed), Burton's diaries and Melvyn Bragg's biography earlier this year. So I bought the DVD thinking it would give me more details. How wrong I was.
This film is simply the story of how these two famous people rehearsed for and played in their last production together.
The two main actors were less than credible. I kept thinking of how Meryl Streep actually became Maggie Thatcher when she played that role... not so with the interpretations of either of these lead players.
Having bought the DVD, I looked forward to watching it and settled down with a glass of wine in front of a cosy fire. Imagine how disappointed I was.
