The Loss of a Teardrop Diamond is a 2009 film by director Jodie Markell. The film is based on Tennessee Williams's long-forgotten 1957 screenplay. The film stars Bryce Dallas Howard in the leading role of Fisher Willow.



The film tells the story of Fisher Willow (Bryce Dallas Howard). After returning from overseas, she falls in love with Jimmy (Chris Evans), the son of an alcoholic father and an insane mother. She does everything in her power to pass him off as a wealthy suitor so that she can appease her family, especially her aunt (Ann-Margret), who controls their fortune and who would deem Jimmy completely unsuitable based on his family's background. Fisher, however, realizes she has lost a diamond, which might put her relationship in jeopardy.


In November 2006, it was announced that Lindsay Lohan was going to play the lead role, but in March 2007, Bryce Dallas Howard was under negotiations for Lohan's role and went on to be cast.[1] Shooting for the film began on August 13, 2007 in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.
