Tennessee Williams has a way with his women. His most poignant creation may be the narcissistic Blanche DuBois, a woman whose life has been undermined by her romantic illusions, which lead her to reject the realities of life with which she is faced and which she consistently ignores.

With a story that pits her false gentility against the earthiness of her working class sister Stella and her short-tempered brother-in-law Stanley Kowalski, this American classic is a collision of character that keeps audiences holding on tight from beginning to the merciless end.
