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.
This is a true exmple of a classic. Tennessee Williams is a great writer, and the film itself is phenomenal!!! Even though it's Blanche DuBoise's (Vivien Leigh, whose performance-- i think--is overrated) story, it is clearly Marlon Brando who steals the spotlight. He gives one of the greatest performances that I have ever seen, not to mention that he is sooooo hot in this movie! They just don't make films like this anymore! So, if you're a true movie fan (like me), you definately have to check it out!
I read the book, and then watched the movie. It was an absolute pleasure to be able to read and watch such a fine story. Blanche is a tragic hero that everyone hates to love. A masterpeice. I do recomend you read the book first. lalalove.
I watched in the dorm, im sure none of them knew i watched this sort of thing, he was the best, these new actors and new movies dont compare .. at .. all
