"Tennessee Williams on Screen and Stage" - Museum of The Moving Image, December 2009

A Conversation with Ellen Burstyn, Bryce Dallas Howard, Jodie Markell, Elaine Stritch, and Eli Wallach...

"When I saw a new film with a screenplay authored by none other than Tennessee Williams, I was seized by a feeling of joy. For this giant of stage and screen to resurrect in the year 2009 seemed nothing less than a victory over death. And so it is. FOR LOSS OF A TEARDROP DIAMOND is not a fragment, a poor shadow; it is a legitimate addition to the Williams pantheon. Wealthy aunts, pretentious debutantes, personal ruin, mental illness, the cruelties of society, they're all here, and towering over it all, Williams compassion and poetry. He writes again of his lost world, and we experience the lost world of Williams himself once more. It's a kind of miracle."
