Blue Jasmine

Director: Woody Allen, Main Cast: Cate Blanchett, Alec BaldwinPeter SarsgaardSally Hawkins

A New York socialite goes west…in more senses than one. After she has lost everything (husband, son, status, money, houses, jewels), Jasmine moves to her sister’s place in San Francisco to start fresh. The two sisters are as different as the moon and the sun but try, clumsily and blindly, to push each other to improve their situation in life, with somehow mixed results. Do we ever change what we are at the core? For the first time Allen choses as his neurotic alter-ego a woman, and about time, Cate Blanchett is quite spectacular in the role. Special kudos to Sally Hawkins as well. —7/10
