Starring by Kate Blanchett, Alec Baldwin, Peter Sarsgaard and Sally Hawkins, Blue Jasmine is the new film by Woody Allen. Written and directed by himself, this film tells the story of Jasmine, a socialite from Manhattan who loses everything and is forced to live in San Francisco with her sister who is not in a favorable economic situation. There, Jasmine must adapt to her new life, rekindle the relationship with her sister, and fight with ghosts of the past and a privileged life that is gone.
The film, released in the U.S. and other countries since the summer, has had rave reviews, especially praising the performances of Kate Blanchett and Sally Hawkins (which have been nominated for the Golden Globe and who have generated expectation for the Oscar), and the classic balance achieved in his scripts by Allen, between drama, real situations and black humor. Blue Jasmine is currently in theaters.
