Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: Perhaps playwright Tennessee Williams' unproduced 1980 screenplay was unproduced -- until now -- for a reason. – Lisa Schwarzbaum, Entertainment Weekly, Jan 6, 2010

Rotten: If Tennessee Williams's script for Joseph Losey's 1968 turkey Boom! saw the light of day, just how bad must a Williams screenplay unproduced for decades be? – Melissa Anderson, Village Voice, Jul 7, 2010

Rotten: Though it's dated, the larger issue has to do with those timeless problems of plot and character. – Jake Coyle, Associated Press, Jun 24, 2010

Rotten: The script is half-a-fortune at best, and visually the picture is staid. But you stick with it, because it's Williams and because certainly no one since Williams has written this sort of embroidered dialogue. – Michael Phillips, Chicago Tribune, Jul 7, 2010

Loss of a Teardrop Diamond

I saw this film in the theatre when it was first released and I loved this film. Beautifully directed and acted with meticulous attention to detail. Jodie Markell, the director, clearly has a deep understanding of the work of Tennesse Williams and brought that clarity to the script and in her direction. This is a must see! !!!


Beautifully shot, directed, and acted. A must-see for any Tennessee Williams fan!

Amazingly unlikeable.

It's melodramatic tripe. The characters are unlikeable, the acting is unlikeable, the story is unlikeable.
