Blue Jasmine (2013)

Director: Woody Allen

Stars: Cate Blanchett, Alec Baldwin, Peter Sarsgaard, Andrew Dice Clay, Bobby Cannavale, Louis C.K.

Jasmine French used to be on the top of the heap as a New York socialite, but now is returning to her estranged sister in San Francisco utterly ruined. As Jasmine struggles with her haunting memories of a privileged past bearing dark realities she ignored, she tries to recover in her present. Unfortunately, it all proves a losing battle as Jasmine's narcissistic hang-ups and their consequences begin to overwhelm her. In doing so, her old pretensions and new deceits begin to foul up everyone's lives, especially her own.

This movie proved that Woody Allen still has it. He can still make a good solid movie. You would think with his age. He created a movie on which people had and would stories about. People love to heard about an uppity socialite woman fall on her face back to reality without any money. Other woman love that stuff. This was a movie made more for woman than anyone else.

The cast for the movie was so good. You can never go wrong with having Cate Blanchett play the lead in a movie. She is always wonderful in every role. The rest of the cast were perfect for the movie. Andrew Dice Clay was in it. I was just glad that he was still working. That someone still hired him to be in a movie. I was surprised to see him in this.

The story and the movie was a little slow. You had to keep up with the movie. That was the only down fall of the movie. There was just not a lot going on.

This is a movie were you need to sit and watch it. You need to be in the mood for this movie. This is more of a woman's movie than anything else. It is a movie worth watching once, but I do not know about a second time. Enjoy.
