Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?

1966 Rated NR 2hr 11m

On a serene New England campus, emasculated professor George (Richard Burton) and his rancorous wife, Martha (Elizabeth Taylor), turn an evening of cocktails into an unrelenting onslaught of wrenching disclosures and bellowed epithets. Soon, the couple's guests -- junior professor Nick (George Segal) and his wife, Honey (Sandy Dennis) -- get sucked into the vortex of the warring duo's unbounded fury. Taylor nabbed an Oscar for her role.
