Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? Movie Review

One of the great directorial debuts in film history came from Mike Nichols, in this 1966 firestorm of emotion, a faithful adaptation of Edward Albee's famous play. Two history professors (Richard Burton and George Segal) meet for drinks with their wives (Liz Taylor and Sandy Dennis). Over the course of the evening, secrets come out and scandals erupt. The real-life husband and wife team of Burton and Taylor own this show, but Dennis also won an Oscar (one of 5 wins) in what has become a watershed film that broke down walls of profanity and vitriol.
