“Superbly adapted, with blistering performances from Taylor and Hepburn…with [Gore] Vidal adding extra venom to already high camp horror, but with a hothouse pleasure in eloquence.”
– Kim Newman, Empire
“An outrageous, melodramatic shocker…replete with enough imagery to sustain an American Lit seminar for months…It works.”
– Time Out London
Joseph L. Mankiewicz directs this 1959 adaptation by Gore Vidal and Tennessee Williams of Williams’ provocative play, Suddenly, Last Summer. Elizabeth Taylor stars as a young woman who knows such terrible truths about the death of her cousin Sebastian that his mother (Katharine Hepburn) is determined to have her lobotomized; Montgomery Clift is the psychiatrist brought in to evaluate the lovely, profoundly disturbed patient. Both Taylor and Hepburn received Best Actress Oscar® nominations; the film, denounced as obscene, was a hit at the box office.
