Storyline

Tells the story of Fisher Willow, the disliked 1920s Memphis débutante daughter of a plantation owner with a distaste for narrow-minded people and a penchant for shocking and insulting those around her. After returning from studies overseas, Fisher falls in love with Jimmy, the down-and-out son of an alcoholic father and an insane mother who works at a store on her family's plantation. She tries to pass him off as an upper-class suitor to appease the spinster aunt who controls her family's fortune, but when she loses a diamond, it places their tenuous relationship in further jeopardy.

Tennessee Williams
9 February 2011 | by See all my reviews

The film delivered the familiar themes one expects from the great playwright: emotional turmoil, psychological depth, and very real depiction of human behaviour. The heroine's vulnerability and eccentricities reminded me of the unforgettable Blanche DuBois. Fisher Willow, someone you come to hate at first glance, whose purity and innocence is buried beneath heaps of selfishness and seemingly ill-natured arrogance is a character hard to pull off for any actor, yet the young actress playing the part pulls it off with ease.

I never knew Williams had written TLOATD so watching it was a blast. For me the films based on Tennessee Williams' scripts always get high scores no matter who makes them. Kudos to the director for bringing to life this lost gem.
