    A Streetcar Named Desire

    an overblown and high-strung version of an already overwritten (though beautiful) play, resulting in too much smoke and no fire. the cuts made for Hollywood™ purposes leave the text neutered and the impact greatly lessened. Leigh is a good actress who has been over-directed while Brando is miscast in all but his looks.

    In the trailer, Kyle Chandler writes the word ‘MOON’ on a chalkboard and then underlines it in case we forget what this movie is about.

    This movie has Saoirse Ronan, Laurie Metcalf, Tracy Letts, Timothée Chalamet, Lucas Hedges, AND Stephen McKinley Henderson. Did Greta Gerwig just watch all New York theatre of the past five years and say "yes" to all of it?
