Woody Allen’s latest is not only a return to form — it also gives a perfect antidote to the Valentine’s Day love-in.
When New York socialite Jasmine’s (Cate Blanchett) husband is accused of fraud she is forced to leave the high life and stay with her sister Ginger (Sally Hawkins) in a small San Francisco apartment.
A latter day Blanche Dubois, Jasmine is a troubled soul looking for the right man to take her back to the good life. But she will soon learn it’s not going to be quite the escape plan she had hoped for…
With support from Alec Baldwin and excellent cameos from comedians Louis CK and Andrew Dice Clay, Cate Blanchett’s performance is widely considered her career best and she is hotly tipped to win big this awards season.
★★★★★ ‘Allen has produced an outstanding movie, immensely satisfying and absorbing.’ Peter Bradshaw, THE GUARDIAN
★★★★★ ‘Cate Blanchett delivers an astounding performance…With every twitch, every startled glance and impatient gesture, [she] finds the human within this monster of snobbishness.’ Anthony Quinn, THE INDEPENDENT
★★★★★ ‘Allen’s sharp script, [is] perhaps the most economically minded of his career.’ Joshua Rothkopf, TIME OUT
★★★★★ ‘A career-best Cate Blanchett dazzles in Woody Allen’s heartbreaking missive.’ David Jenkins, LITTLE WHITE LIES
