A Streetcar Named Desire

A Streetcar Named Desire

Back in cinemas courtesy of a crisp digital re-issue, Elia Kazan's legendary 1951 adaptation of Tennessee Williams’s play is famed for the brute and unruly power of Marlon Brando’s performance, an early expression of the method style of acting that had such a marked influence on American cinema over the coming decades.

In the sticky heat of New Orleans' French Quarter, Blanche DuBois (Vivien Leigh), a small-town beauty who feels her best years are behind her, arrives at the modest apartment of her sister Stella (Kim Hunter) and her explosive husband Stanley Kowalski (Marlon Brando).
