Three sentence movie reviews: Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf

 In All (-ish), Three Sentence Movie Reviews


Having seen the play, I knew what I was in for, and I had already experienced the claustrophobia that comes from being trapped in a small theater with George and Martha.  This, the film felt roomy and expansive in places, and lost some of its urgency.  That said, it’s still quite a good movie and while all actors are great, Sandy Dennis particularly delights as Honey, the young wife of a Biology Professor new to campus.

Cost: free from library
Where watched: at home

    I saw this production when I was ushering in DC. It was emotionally draining. Not sure if I would want to see it again in film version.

    Weren’t they a couple in real life? I’m wondering if that chemistry showed through on the screen. Often I find that real-life couples don’t have much chemistry on-screen. I wonder why that is.

      They were a couple in real life and had a very acrimonious relationship. They were actually married twice.

      They had a ton of chemistry on screen! I could see getting drunk with them and easily getting pulled into a threesome. It would have terrible fallout afterward, but would be irresistible during.
