USA 1951 (re-released February 2020), 127 mins. Dir. Elia Kazan.
Starring Vivien Leigh, Marlon Brando, Kim Hunter and Karl Malden
Blanche DuBois, a faded Southern belle with pretensions to grandeur, arrives to start a new life in the New Orleans tenement building of her pregnant sister Stella and her boorish brother-in-law Stanley Kowalski. Tensions begin to rise in the steamy heat of summer as Blanche is cruelly taunted by Stanley, and her fragile sense of identity begins to crumble. Elia Kazan’s legendary adaptation of Tennessee Williams’ landmark Pulitzer Prize-winning play is famed for the simmering, unruly power of Brando’s performance, while Vivien Leigh won an Academy Award for Best Actress for her sensitive portrayal of the troubled Blanche.
