Without doubt the worst film I have seen in which Helen Mirren is the leading actress. Both Helen Mirren and Ann Bancroft deserve a better vehicle for their talents than this excuse for a story.
The dialogue grates, the supporting cast are wooden and the plot is so predictable.
The incidental music is poor, repetitive and intrusive, giving the movie the feel of a cheap 'Hallmark' romance.
Leave this one on the shelf, there are much better movies to be seen.

Fascinating made for television version of Tennessee Williams classic drama. Unfortunately this is a 4 x 3 image and the destail is not great but it's still an enjoyable production.

I bought this dvd on the basis of an Italian background and the fact that the delightful Oliver Martinez starred in this film, plus I enjoy Tennessee Williams works. It was also I gather an Emmy Award Nomination. I felt the acting was wooden, and although settings were very well portrayed, I was left with a feeling of total disappointment and gave it away to the local Charity Shop. I hope others do not feel the same way.

Not a film to give you the comfort vibe, Helen Mirren as an affluent window plays this in all facets of an extror dinarily bitter woman.

A truly boring film. Nothing redeemed it - not the stellar cast, the glamorous setting nor the fact that this was the second time a film had been made of this play. In fact, I am amazed that anyone bothered to make a film from such a pedestrian and uninspired plot. A waste of the marvellous talent of both Helen Mirren & Anne Bancroft. Save yourself the money & do not spend it on this movie.

Total miscasting of Helen Mirren. She’s. Great actress, but not for this part.

An interesting take on Tennessee William's play with Helen Mirren in good form, but you have to suspend your disbelief at the hammy moments.
