Blue Jasmine
Dir: Woody Allen 2013 USA 98 minutes
Cert: 15A Starring: Cate Blanchett, Alec Baldwin, Sally Hawkins, Bobby Cannavale, Andrew Dice Clay
Language: English

After the extended European sojourn of VICKY CRISTINA BARCELONA, MIDNIGHT IN PARIS, and TO ROME WITH LOVE, Woody Allen returns to American soil with BLUE JASMINE – a return that brings with it some of the bitterly sharp-edged wit that was perhaps absent from his overseas triptych. Cate Blanchett is outstanding as Jasmine, a down-and-out New York socialite who, left destitute by her cheating husband (Baldwin)’s financial misdemeanours, moves in with her adopted sister (Hawkins) and her blue-collar boyfriend in San Francisco. Oscillating between cool, razor-tongued haughtiness and agitated pill-popping anxiety, Blanchett is a neurotic Allen heroine par excellence, while Hawkins is quietly wonderful as her long-suffering sibling. Typically polished dialogue and serrating humour ensure this will go down as a favourite in the Allen canon. – Cambridge Film Festival 2013
