Suddenly Last Summer
Nothing can ruin your summer faster than your grief-stricken, emotionally unstable aunt trying to force you to have a lobotomy. Katharine Hepburn’s Violet Venable in Joseph L. Mankiewicz’s Suddenly, Last Summer tries to do just that to her niece (Elizabeth Taylor) after the young girl witnesses a tragic family incident. Mrs. Venable will do anything to cover the truth behind the strange and horrific incident, which only forces Taylor’s Catherine to relive the moments over and over again. The film is based on a play by Tennessee Williams who always manages to make hot, sticky days and long summer nights feel dizzying.
