I think Blue Jasmine is my favorite Woody Allen film to date. No, I didn’t like Manhattan. Blue Jasmine is about a woman named Jasmine (Cate Blanchett). ¬†Jasmine is a former New York socialite from Park Ave, who is down on her luck due to her husband’s shady business dealings. Think Bernie Madoff. ¬†Jasmine decides to move in with her adopted sister Ginger (Sally Hawkins) in San Francisco to try to pull her life together. While working as a receptionist in a dentist office and going to school, Jasmine is determined to return to the life that she became accustomed to.

Cate Blanchett is amazing in this role. She plays a woman becoming undone beautifully. Hal, Jasmine’s husband is flawlessly played by Alec Baldwin. Baldwin is such a great actor. When I see he is attached to a film, I always know the film is going to be great. And if the movie isn’t great, I know Baldwin will steal a scene or two. It’s a Baldwin given. Andrew Dice Clay is great as Ginger’s unpolished, brut of a husband who gets sucked into Hal’s business schemes. I hope this opens the door for more roles for Clay. I would like to see more of him on the big screen. My boo, Louis C.K is in this. He sure is. And he is wonderful. Even as a slime ball.

Blue Jasmine is a good solid film all around and I was very pleased with all of the actors performances. Do yourself a favor and go see it.
