Elizabeth Taylor’s death has left me reeling. Everyone has their favorite iconic actress, Audrey Hepburn, Marilyn Monroe, and mine was Elizabeth Taylor. So in her honor, I have been taking in every movie I possibly could. While I have been at work busy taping up receipts, making copies, and the like, I threw on Giant.
I have never been able to sit and watch epics. Not only do I rarely have the time to watch them, but I always feel guilty for spending three and a half hours watching a movie when I know I have a million things to do, but Giant was well worth the time. Watching Elizabeth on screen is absolutely mesmerizing, and James Dean is smoldering. The cinematography is breathtaking and I was left wanting to pick up the book immediately. If you haven’t seen this movie, it’s streaming instant on Netflix, definitely take the time to watch it!
