A Streetcar Named Desire


A streetcar named desire 1472629093

Having lost the family home in Mississippi, faded southern belle, Blanche Dubois seeks refuge at her sister Stella's apartment in New Orleans. Blanche is disturbed by her past, embarrassed by her present, and confused about her future.

Her presence upsets the balance of the household and her aristocratic pretences infuriate Stanley, Stella's working-class husband. As Blanche fumbles for love and Stella prepares for motherhood, Stanley exposes the lies and delusions that support Blanche, callously destroying her tenuous hold on reality.
