I love Vivian Leigh, the actress. But now, after reading Truly, Madly, I admire her courage in going all out for her dreams despite serious mental health issues.
Vivian and Laurence Olivier had a real love story—not just a Hollywood romance. And, unfortunately, not all real-life stories have a happy ending. However, I did learn a lot about the acting profession in the twentieth century as well as about the actors themselves.
Truly, Madly is an intriguing true-life tale of passion, drive, and moviemaking. 4 stars!
Thanks to Grand Central Publishing and NetGalley for a copy in exchange for my honest review.
