Synopsis

U & Me & Tennessee is a new feature length documentary movie. Disturbing, shocking, hilarious and sobering, it tells the story of the romance between the late Tennessee Williams and Konrad Hopkins in the early 1950's. Conjured out of the memories of Konrad Hopkins, who knew Tennessee Williams in the 1950's, and drawing on their unpublished correspondence, U & Me & Tennessee mixes original music, archive images and the full-hearted listening and humorous, incisive questioning of Paul Birchard to paint a vivid picture of what it was really like to be close to Williams when he was the Zeus of Broadway, battling - and embracing - the "bitch goddess success."
