DETAILED STORYLINE
.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Drama - While there are some comic moments, this is one of writer-director Woody Allen's more dramatic films. This is a big showcase for lead Cate Blanchett, with all other stars, including other recognizable faces such as Alec Baldwin and Peter Sarsgaard, in supporting roles of varying size. Language and adult subject matter make the film inappropriate for children.

Critic's Review Heading

Roger Ebert Full Review
Good A good Woody Allen flick is a thing of joy these days and, at times, 'Blue Jasmine' is even a great one, close to being an equal to 2005's 'Match Point.' Let us hope he never stops trying.

NY Post Full Review
Good Somewhat less than the sum of its parts, Woody Allen's 'Blue Jasmine'' showcases a brilliant, Oscar-worthy performance by Cate Blanchett as sort of a WASP version of Ruth Madoff.

D ETAILED S TORYLINE
After everything in her life falls to pieces, including her marriage to wealthy businessman Hal (Alec Baldwin), elegant New York socialite Jasmine (Cate Blanchett) moves into her sister Ginger's (Sally Hawkins) modest apartment in San Francisco to try to pull herself back together again.

Jasmine arrives in San Francisco in a fragile mental state, her head reeling from the cocktail of anti-depressants she's on. While still able to project her aristocratic bearing, Jasmine is emotionally precarious and lacks any practical ability to support herself. She disapproves of Ginger's boyfriend Chili (Bobby Cannavale), who she considers another "loser" like Ginger's ex-husband Augie (Andrew Dice Clay). Ginger, recognizing but not fully understanding her sister's psychological instability, suggests that she pursue interior design, a career she correctly intuits that Jasmine won't feel is beneath her. In the meantime, Jasmine begrudgingly accepts work as the receptionist in a dentist's office, where she attracts the unwanted attentions of her boss, Dr. Flicker (Michael Stuhlbarg).

Feeling that her sister might be right about her poor taste in men, Ginger starts seeing Al (Louis C.K.), a sound engineer whom she considers as a step up from Chili. Jasmine sees a potential lifeline when she meets Dwight (Peter Sarsgaard), a diplomat who is quickly smitten with her beauty, sophistication and style.

Jasmine's flaw is that she derives her worth from the way she's perceived by others, while she herself is blind to what is going around her.
