GIRLS, INTERRUPTED

Goin’ Crazy: Six Fabulously Fragile Film Femmes

Suddenly, Last Summer
Sometimes our heroine isn’t crazy—it’d just be more convenient if people thought she was: In this Tennessee Williams adaptation from 1959,  Elizabeth Taylor plays a woman defending her sanity against her sadistic aunt Violet (Katharine Hepburn)—both of whom helped “procure” young boys for creepy Sebastian Venable. Both actresses were nominated for Oscars.
