Film: A Streetcar Named DesireFilm, The Screen Wed 15 Apr, 6.30pm
Elia Kazan, 1951 (12A)
This season, our film programme, The Screen at Contemporary, presents 24 Frames: the films and influences of Martin Scorsese.
Based on the Tennessee Williams play, the now infamous tale follows Blanche Dubois, an ageing Southern Belle, when she visits her sister and meets her animalistic husband Stanley. Marlon Brandon and Vivien Leigh give two of the best performances in cinema history. The film uncovers themes of guilt, sex and fear, and the horror that can be revealed when masks slip.
Elia Kazan was Scorsese’s most revered filmmaker. A Streetcar Named Desire is paired with Goodfellas, which we will screen on Wed 8 Apr, 6.30pm.
