The Loss of a Teardrop Diamond

Something went wrong with this adaptation of a long un-produced Tennessee Williams script. Could it be the casting? The limp and uninspired direction? The fact that the script was undercooked and needed more rewrites to really be something? It was everything. But there's still a small spark of what could have been buried underneath the southern heat and genteel society parties. It comes in the for... read more

“Something went wrong with this adaptation of a long un-produced Tennessee Williams script. Could it be the casting? The limp and uninspired direction? The fact that the script was undercooked and needed more rewrites to really be something? It was everything. But there's still a small spark of what could have been buried underneath the southern heat and genteel society parties. It comes in the form of Ellen Burstyn as Miss Addie, a severely disabled woman thanks to a history of opium addiction and a series of strokes. I wanted to know more about her history. Our main heroine, Fisher Willow, seems so small compared to her. Addie has a spark, a verve and nerve that the greatest of Williams' heroines possess, even as they descend into madness, poverty, or both. Burstyn plays the role for ever” read more

" I'm a huge Tennessee Williams fan, which may have worked both ways for me as I struggled to enjoy this film while simultaneously trying to stifle my disappointment in some of its weaker points. The direction here is a bit stilted and uncertain and the performances never quite lift the film above its built-in faults. Watch Suddenly, Last Summer instead. "
