Gillian Anderson as Blanche DuBois

By rdsimms
Gives a performance of power, delicacy, humor, pathos and raw emotion. She is, in a word, magnificent as the pitiable faded beauty slowly and inexorably descending into madness. A riveting...

Incredible!

Gillian Anderson was absolutely phenomenal as well as the rest of the cast. I wish more people could have seen it!...
