Blue Jasmine (2013, 1hr 38, rated 12A)
This week’s Streamers Film Club movie is “Blue Jasmine” featuring an Oscar and BAFTA winning performance from Cate Blanchett. It’s another change of pace for us, a highly-rated drama and, most importantly, our first member’s suggestion (thanks and please keep them coming). Officially speaking …
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. Woody Allen’s new drama BLUE JASMINE is about the dire consequences that can result when people avert their eyes from reality and the truth they don’t want to see.
Anyway enough talk, here’s the trailer to help you make your mind up:
And, as always, if you have an Amazon Prime subscription you can watch the whole film for free here. Enjoy.
Why we chose it
- Because you asked us nicely! 🙂
- Strong reviews, Awards a-plenty and the promise of a “powerhouse performance” from Blanchett.
- We love some of them, we hate others – but Woody Allen films usually get people talking.
The critics thought…
