Writer/director Woody Allen’s (Hannah and Her Sisters) 2013 film is the drama-comedy Blue Jasmine, starring Cate Blanchett (Hanna) and featuring the ensemble cast of Alec Baldwin (Rock of Ages), Sally Hawkins (Never Let Me Go), Louis C.K. (TV’s Louie), Bobby Cannavale (Roadie), Peter Sarsgaard (An Education), and Michael Stuhlbarg (A Serious Man) and Andrew Dice Clay
The film centers around Jasmine (Blanchett), a former New York socialite teetering on an emotional tightrope, balancing between her troubled east coast past and a fresh start in San Francisco. Having moved into her sister’s (Hawkins) humble apartment, Jasmine ricochets between the tumultuous acceptance of her new limitations, and the dreams of reclaiming her past life’s glamor.
Well-received by the critics—it garnered a rating of 91% at Rotten Tomatoes based on 153 published reviews—the PG-13-rated Blue Jasmine (which has narrative that sort of plays like an updated variation on Tennessee Williams’ A Streetcar Named Desire) received a wide release to U.S. theaters in August, 2013, where it rang up a healthy $33 million.
