Disturbed Blanche DuBois moves in with her sister in New Orleans and is tormented by her brutish brother-in-law while her reality crumbles around her. IMDB rating: 8.1 from over 47,142 users

Looking for a benchmark in movie acting? Breakthrough performances don’t come much more electrifying than Marlon Brando’s animalistic turn as Stanley Kowalski in A Streetcar Named Desire. Sweaty, brutish, mumbling, yet with the balanced grace of a prizefighter, Brando storms through the role–a role he had originated in the Broadway production of Tennessee Williams’s celebrated play. Amazon 4.5 stars from over 163 users

Superb dialogue defines the renowned film version of Tennessee Williams’ classic play, A STREETCAR NAMED DESIRE. Vivien Leigh as Blanche DuBois and Marlon Brando as Stanley create a brilliant and volatile screen relationship. MovieGuide 4 stars (of 4), content warning: light violence, light sex
