Creating memories and bespoke ceremonies
After ‘Vicky Christina Barcelona’, ‘Midnight in Paris’, and ‘To Rome with Love’, Woody Allen returns to American soil with ‘Blue Jasmine’– a return that brings with it some of the sharp-edged wit that was perhaps absent from his overseas triptych.
Cate Blanchett is outstanding as Jasmine, a down-and-out New York socialite who, left destitute by her cheating husband’s financial misdemeanours, moves in with her adopted sister and her blue-collar boyfriend in San Francisco. Oscillating between cool haughtiness, and pill-popping anxiety, Blanchett is a neurotic Allen heroine par excellence.
Polished dialogue and serrating humour ensure this will go down as a favourite in the Allen canon.
