Woody Allen’s latest American drama starring Cate Blanchett, Sally Hawkins, Alec Baldwin, Bobby Cannavale, Louis C.K., Andrew Dice Clay.
Cate Blanchett stars as a volatile, former upper-class trophy wife who loses it all after her husband’s shady real estate business comes to an end. Woody Allen writes and directs this portrait of a woman’s slow descent to madness.
Woody Allen has always been hit-or-miss with me, but he’s rarely been uninteresting. While “Blue Jasmine” can be uncomfortable and sometimes draining, the performances are superb and, when it wants to be, the film is an interesting study in privilege and class.
Blue Jasmine opens today in select theaters.
