Who’S Afraid Of Virginia Woolf? says
Whoo boy, nothing will make you feel better about the holiday machinations and recriminations in your family’s household like spending a boozy evening with Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton. The real life on again-off again-on again couple are downright combustible in Mike Nichols’ big screen directorial debut, an envelope-pushing adaptation of Edward Albee’s play.

George (Burton) is an alcoholic college professor. Martha is his loud and overbearing wife. Together, they know just how to push each other's buttons. Tiring of attacking each other, George and Martha invite newcomers Nick and Honey (George Segal and Sandy Dennis) to join them for drinks one night after a faculty party. During the course of the evening, both marriages are dissected, painful truths are revealed, and long-established ways of coping are destroyed.

Besides being a box office success, scoring an Oscar win for Taylor, and launching Nichols into hot young Hollywood director status, WHO’S AFRAID OF VIRGINIA WOOLF is, as Stanley Kauffmann of the New York Times calls it, “one of the most scathingly honest American films ever made.”
