The Sandpiper: Twenty-something Laura Reynolds is a free spirit who questions social conventions, laws and regulations. A struggling artist, she lives in a secluded beach-side cabin in Big Sur with her nine year old illegitimate son, Danny, on who she has instilled her values. Because of this questioning of convention, Laura has decided to home school Danny. Also because of this questioning of the law, Danny runs into some legal problems, and as such is court ordered to be sent to San Simeon, a Christian school in Monterrey. This order is against Laura's wishes. The school's headmaster is Dr. Rev. Edward Hewitt, who tries to convince Laura that San Simeon is not the prison she probably believes it to be. Married for twenty-one years to his faithful wife Claire, Edward has become more a fund-raiser at all cost (for a new chapel) rather than an educator or priest. Despite their differences, Laura and Edward begin to fall for each other. Both but especially Edward have to reconcile their feelings for each other to their beliefs, which they learn are closer to each other than what may appear on the surface. Their feelings also bring to the forefront what each really wants in life beyond their current lot.

Great scenery,great colors,great music,great acting but I didn't like the plot.The plot was just okay in my opinion.This movie is certainly not the best movie of Elizabeth Taylor but it still worth watching if you are a fan of Elizabeth Taylor.

I enjoyed this a lot. But it wasn't the best of Elizabeth Taylor's movies. The storyline was alright. Worth a try.

Not my favorite of Elizabeth Taylor's films, but still very interesting. I enjoyed the plot, and the acting was obviously great. I think she fit this role well, and did a beautiful job! Beautiful scenery and color. Very nice film to look at. Highly recommended!

Trashed by crtics when released, it has aged well with a distinctive mellow quality, gorgeous locations, Minnelli's incredible eye for color and texture, and undeniable star power!
