Storyline

Set in the French Quarter of New Orleans during the restless years following World War Two, A STREETCAR NAMED DESIRE is the story of Blanche DuBois, a fragile and neurotic woman on a desperate prowl for someplace in the world to call her own. After being exiled from her hometown of Laurel, Mississippi for seducing a seventeen-year-old boy at the school where she taught English, Blanche explains her unexpected appearance on Stanley and Stella's (Blanche's sister) doorstep as nervous exhaustion. This, she claims, is the result of a series of financial calamities which have recently claimed the family plantation, Belle Reve. Suspicious, Stanley points out that "under Louisiana's Napoleonic code what belongs to the wife belongs to the husband." Stanley, a sinewy and brutish man, is as territorial as a panther. He tells Blanche he doesn't like to be swindled and demands to see the bill of sale. This encounter defines Stanley and Blanche's relationship. They are opposing camps and Stella is...

Quite good
12 July 1999 | by (Athens, Greece) – See all my reviews

Tennessee Williams is a legend. This play is a true masterpiece. So it's worth watching it no matter how the actors do. And they do pretty well. Alec Baldwin gives us possibly his best acting, but possibly Jessica Lange doesn't reach this level, while having a role most actresses would beg for years to have. John Goodman is fine and gives a perspective of Mitch I hadn't in mind but he's a bit characterized as a comedy type and possibly that creates problems. Diane Lane is ok but nothing special (it's the less demanding role anyway). The scenery is better than the original film but the film has been PC transformed. Too mild for what Williams wanted to show.
