About this item

"The Loss Of A Teardrop Diamond" is a new drama based on a recently rediscovered original screenplay by legendary writer Tennessee Williams. Widely considered the most important American playwright of the post-WWII, era, Williams wrote the "Teardrop Diamond" screenplay at the height of his late-1950's heyday, amid such classic plays, (which themselves were adapted into classic films), as "Cat on a Hot Tin Roof", "Suddenly, Last Summer", "Sweet Bird of Youth" and "Orpheus Descending". Set in the Roaring Twenties in the town of Memphis, the film tells the story of Fisher Willow (Bryce Dallas Howard) a headstrong young heiress who chafes under the constraints of proper Southern society, and who rebels by asking the impoverished but handsome son of her father's caretaker, Jimmy Dobyne (Chris Evans), to escort her to the major social events of the season. The relationship is purely a business arrangement at the outset, with Fisher paying for Jimmy's time and attention, but when she discovers that she really loves him, she finds it impossible to re-write the rules and earn the affection she tried to buy. Howard's ability to evoke the dueling strength and fragility of this quintessential Williams heroine, along with her stunning mastery of his lush, poetic language, firmly establish her as one of the best actresses of her generation, and place her Fisher Willow in a pantheon of performances that includes Vivien Leigh's Blanche DuBois, Elizabeth Taylor's Maggie the Cat, Anna Magnani's Serafina delle Rose, and Geraldine Page's Alexandra Del Lago.

Behind the scenes, Conversation with director Jodie Markell, Deleted scenes.
