What is the movie A Streetcar Named Desire about?
Based on the play of the same name written by Tennessee Williams, “A streetcar Named Desire” is noted for winning Oscars in three acting categories – best actress (Vivian Leigh), best supporting actress (Kim Hunter) and best supporting actor (Karl Malden). Marlon Brando was nominated in the best actor category, but he didn't win it, even though his role in this film is nowadays considered one of the most powerful performances in the history of cinema, as well as one of the first and finest examples of method acting. Aside from Vivian Leigh, the entire principal cast has also acted in the original Broadway theater show, and the director of the stage production Elia Kazan also directed the movie. “A streetcar Named Desire” tells the tale of Blanche DuBois, an aging Southern belle who is a secret alcoholic and a nervous wreck, and who has played a great part in the loss of her family's estate. After the suicide of her husband, Blanche leaves her hometown to visit her sister Stella Kowalski who lives in new Orleans. Stella lives with her husband Stanley, a brutish, animalistic alpha male who is physically and emotionally abusive to Stella. The presence of Blanche infuriates Stanley, who is looking to expose her as a drunk and a liar that she is. Their conflict threatens to bring absolute chaos into the Kowalski household and wreck the lives of everyone involved. When two deeply flawed humans choose to butt heads, not a lot of good can come out of it.

I cannot write everything I would like to write about this movie without taking up like a whole page or something, so I'll boil it down to a few major points: first of all, if you're not a Brando fan this movie will turn you into one. His performance and his style are hard not to admire, he's one of the greatest actors. The story is based on Williams' play, of course, which is a very powerful, intense, dramatic play. Transferred to the screen with Kazan's style, it's brilliant. The only problem with the film is that it changes the ending from the play, but other than that it's fantastic. I highly recommend this movie.
