Lindsay Lohan has found herself back in the news, conveniently just in time for Lifetime to release the first trailer for its biopic Liz & Dick, which premieres on the small screen this November.
Check out the full plot summary below.
For nearly a quarter of a century, Taylor and Burton were Hollywood royalty and their fiery romance — often called “the marriage of the century” — was the most notorious, publicized and celebrated love affair of its day. Swarmed by paparazzi, Taylor and Burton’s love affair was played out entirely in front of the global press from the time they met on the set of the major motion picture “Cleopatra”, left their respective spouses, married and divorced, only to remarry and divorce once again. Despite their roller coaster romance for the public eye to see, Taylor and Burton shared an undeniable love greater than most people could have ever dreamed.
It doesn’t take much work from the imagination to picture Lohan in the role physically. Images from set and stills released over the course of production have already confirmed that she could pull off the aesthetics of the character. After seeing the few clips of her acting buried in fragments throughout the flashy trailer, I am crossing my fingers that her look isn’t the only thing she was able to pull off.
When news came that Lohan had accepted the role, despite concerns after her tumultuous personal life had been splashed across the news, I still held out hope that given the opportunity she would make a comeback. Understanding that there’s a certain formula to Lifetime films, this may not be the exact opportunity I was hoping for. Still, the fact that she made it through production with limited hurdles is a positive move for her career.
