It is a very short list of 20th-century American plays that continueto have the same power and impact as when they first appeared yearsafter its Broadway premiere, Tennessee Williams' A Streetcar Named Desireis one of those plays. The story famously recounts how the faded andpromiscuous Blanche DuBois is pushed over the edge by her sexy andbrutal brother-in-law, Stanley Kowalski. Streetcar launched thecareers of Marlon Brando, Jessica Tandy, Kim Hunter and Karl Malden,and solidified the position of Tennessee Williams as one of the mostimportant young playwrights of his generation, as well as that of EliaKazan as the greatest American stage director of the '40s and '50s. Whobetter than America's elder statesman of the theater, Williams'contemporary Arthur Miller, to write as a witness to the lightning thatstruck American culture in the form of A Streetcar Named Desire?

The scenario where she refused to watch a possibly 'anti' documentary and wanted to watch church-sanctioned material sounds like a red flag. While the Church allows dating at 16, it discourages serious relationships until you both are older and considering marriage. She will be surprised that a non-Mormon holds the same values she does and respect you. Which is the highest place in heaven aka celestial kingdom. It's tough to date a med student let alone a resident. I prayed about whether to marry this man, and I felt and still feel strongly that it was right for me. Right now she won't even watch a movie.
