Blue Jasmine (2013)






Cate Blanchett, Sally Hawkins, Alec Baldwin, Bobby Cannavale, Louis C.K., Andrew Dice Clay, Peter Sarsgaard, Michael Stuhlbarg, Max Casella, Alden Ehrenreich, Daniel Jenks, Max Rutherford, Tammy Blanchard, Annie McNamara


Jasmine (Cate Blanchett), a gorgeous classy woman, disembarks in San Francisco after a flight from New York.
Jasmine takes a taxi to her sister Ginger's (Sally Hawkins) sleazy apartment, where Ginger is shocked to learn that Jasmine travelled first class despite claiming to be broke.
In San Francisco, Jasmine reflects on her life and tries to find a way to start a new life. Through flashbacks we see her past with her rich husband, Hal (Alec Baldwin).


Despite tons of people didn't like it and said good acting it's not all, I believe Blue Jasmine is a wonderful film wrote by a brilliant Woody Allen, maybe his best film in recent years. He is able to bring the viewer into the film and make him feel like the main character. Loved cast, love all the performances, but Cate Blanchett was incredible. She took the character and put all the possible emotions in it. As Letterman told Blanchett, even if he had directed the film, the result would still have been a masterpiece because of her.

Anxiety, nightmares and a nervous breakdown, there's only so many traumas a person can withstand until they take to the streets and start screaming.
