A Streetcar Named Desire (Director's Cut)

synopsis


Two-time Academy Award – winning director Elia Kazan took the stage hit 'A Streetcar Named Desire' and turned it into not just a motion picture but a movie masterpiece, a cinematic experience so powerful and passionate that Tennessee Williams – who won the Pulitzer Prize for his play – favoured the screen version over the play's original staging. Filled with unforgettable performances, Streetcar became the first film to garner three of the Academy's four acting awards. Vivien Leigh won as Best Actress for her portrayal of Blanche du Bois, a fading beauty clinging to her illusory would of aristocratic gentility. Karl Malden and Kim Hunter each received Best Supporting Oscars, but the most lasting impression was left by 27-year old Marlon Brando as Stanley Kowalski. Brando's performance brought him the first of four consecutive Academy Award nominations... and it introduced to a wider moviegoing public the trend-setting, naturalistic acting style called “The Method”. A Streetcar Named Desire was also a motion-picture breakthrough for its intimate treatment of sexual situations. Masterful direction. Flawless performances. Historically bold subject matter. These elements combine to make A Streetcar Named Desire a film classic!
