A Streetcar Named Desire

A Streetcar Named Desire is a 1951 American drama film adaptation of Tennessee Williams's Pulitzer Prize-winning 1947 play of the same name. It is the story of a southern lady, Blanche Dubois, encountering a series of personal losses, seeking refuge with her sister in New Orleans and once there, finding herself stuck in close quarters with a brother-in-law she does not like. The Broadway production and cast was converted to film with only minor changes. True to the play, the film is both lyrical and gritty, with complex and contradictory characters. Williams collaborated with Oscar Saul and Elia Kazan on the screenplay. Kazan, who directed the stage production, also directed the film. ... more on Wikipedia
