3rd in my Top Ten Movie Series.

’I’m not living with you.’ Maggie snaps at Brick,
‘We occupy the same cage, that’s all’…‘I feel like a cat on a hot tin roof.’ The raw emotions and the crackling dialogue between Maggie (Elizabeth Taylor) and Brick (Paul Newman) creates sizzling tension as Maggie demonstrates passionate loyalty and love towards Brick (her husband) who has completely disengaged from her and emotionally shut her out. She holds on to him with tenacity as he rejects her over and over. Maggie fights for Brick hoping that he will rewaken his love for her and be with her again.

Cat on a Hot Tin roof was based on Tennessee Williams1955 Pulitzer Prize-Winning Play. Paul Newman earned his first Oscar Nomination for his nuanced portrayal of a troubled sports hero brick.

Creating art and writing is like breathing to me, it keeps me alive. If I stop creating my world shrinks and contracts. When I start to create again it expands and is filled with colour. I feel whole. To create is to be completely, unabashedly alive.
