Directed by: Joseph L. Tennessee Williams wasn't exactly known for writing lighthearted plays and Suddenly, Last Summer is probably the darkest of them all. Insanity and cannibalism being its main themes. The story is over-the-top and melodramatic and it paints an incredibly depressing and destructive picture of homosexuality. Considering that Williams was a gay man from the south living in the time that he did it is perhaps understandable that the character of Sebastian Venable is portrayed as such a selfish monster. The talent involved here is amazing.

Most of the storylines struck a strange chord, and just felt completely out of place. Scroll to continue reading.
Was Sebastian Gay in the movie, Suddenly, Last Summer?
Les Fabian Brathwaite. Filmmakers still managed to get around the Code, but gay characters were cloaked in innuendo, leading to some necessary decoding. Suddenly, Last Summer is one of the strangest tales to make it past the Production Code, though it made it only by the skin of its cannibalistic teeth.
