Suddenly, Last Summer


Suddenly, Last Summer Review

In 1930s New Orleans, a creepy drama/thriller plays out, with a wealthy heiress (Katharine Hepburn) extorting an upstanding doctor (Montgomery Clift) into giving her neice (Elizabeth Taylor) a lobotomy. Why? That's the rub in this juicy, compelling, and typically overblown Tennessee Williams adaptation. Hepburn and Taylor both earned Oscar nominations for their work; it's hard to pick which turns in a more compelling performance.
