About the Movie
Marlon Brando, Vivien Leigh, Kim Hunter and Karl Malden star in this film adaptation of the Tennessee Williams Pulitzer Prize-winning play set in New Orleans' French Quarter. Lonely and fragile Southern belle Blanche DuBois (Leigh), desperate to maintain her fraying sanity, suffers her brutish brother-in-law's (Brando) relentless, badgering attempts to make her face reality--which eventually lead her to madness.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Inner torments are seldom projected with such sensitivity and clarity on the screen.
Fresh: The camera has done greater justice to the Williams play, catching the nuances and reflected tragedy with an intimacy that is so vital in a story of this type.
Fresh: Brando's performance as Stanley is one of those rare screen legends that are all they're cracked up to be.
Fresh: Despite the overwhelming power of Brando's performance, Streetcar is one of the great ensemble pieces in the movies.
I love Brando.
