Movie Summary

Director:
Elia Kazan
Released:
1951
Rating:
PG

A Streetcar Named Desire is the classic, Warner Brothers 1951 adaptation of Tennessee Williams' groundbreaking play of the same name which has become an American film staple. The film tells of the conflict between disturbed Southern Belle Blanche DuBois (Vivien Leigh, Gone With The Wind) and the simple yet brutish Stanley Kowalski (Marlon Brando, The Godfather, Apocalypse Now, The Wild Ones, Candy, Superman, Last Tango in Paris, Island of Doctor Moreau). When Blanche travels to see her sister Stella (Kim Hunter, Planet of the Apes, A Canterbury Tale) she never imagined the trouble she would not only cause but ultimately find herself in. She immediately begins to butt heads with Stella's husband Stanley, their ideals and personalities at complete opposite ends, but she attempts to make things work, for as long as she can. The film does a marvelous job of depiction a true loss of one's grasp of reality as we see Blanche and everyone around her sucked into a loss of hope.
