Blanche DuBois is a troubled southern beauty who is drowning in her problems and loses her last chance at happiness.

This discussion of Tennessee William's Pulitzer Prize-winning play is part of a 3-part discussion of plays co-sponsored by the Connecticut Humanities Council. Copies of the plays are available in limited quantities from the library's Information Desk.
Series schedule as follows: May 27: Love Letters by A. R. Gurney; June 24: Blithe Spirit by Noel Coward.

A brawny, visually arresting period adventure. Robert Downey Jr. is an intriguing choice for the Great Detective, and his trademark bristling energy and off-kilter humor do much to sell this reinvented notion of Holmes. Jude Law is equally well-equipped as a more active Dr. Watson, and together, they make for an engaging team. Downey and Law's amped-up Holmes and Watson are built for the challenge of riding this roller coaster with the audience. Rated: PG-13
