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.

Jasmine arrives in San Francisco in a fragile mental state, her head reeling from the cocktail of anti-depressants she's on. While still able to project her aristocratic bearing, Jasmine is emotionally precarious and lacks any practical ability to support herself. She disapproves of Ginger's boyfriend Chili (Bobby Cannavale), who she considers another "loser" like Ginger's ex-husband Augie (Andrew Dice Clay). Ginger, recognizing but not fully understanding her sister's psychological instability, suggests that she pursue interior design, a career she correctly intuits that Jasmine won't feel is beneath her. In the meantime, Jasmine begrudgingly accepts work as the receptionist in a dentist's office, where she attracts the unwanted attentions of her boss, Dr. Flicker (Michael Stuhlbarg).

Feeling that her sister might be right about her poor taste in men, Ginger starts seeing Al (Louis C.K.), a sound engineer whom she considers as a step up from Chili. Jasmine sees a potential lifeline when she meets Dwight (Peter Sarsgaard), a diplomat who is quickly smitten with her beauty, sophistication and style.

Jasmine's flaw is that she derives her worth from the way she's perceived by others, while she herself is blind to what is going around her. Delicately portrayed by a regal Cate Blanchett, Jasmine earns our compassion because she is the unwitting instrument of her own downfall. 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.

Theatrical Trailer


"A jaw-dropping work, what we go to the movies hoping to see, and we do.
Blanchett is beyond brilliant, beyond analysis. Her performance is one for the books."
Manohla Dargis, New York Times
"A Revelation. A moral fable about greed and comeuppance..."
"The mystery of the movie is that it depicts a bleak world of pervasive rapacity, deceit and self-delusion, yet keeps us rapt with delight...Gives Ms Blanchett the raw, rare material for a performance of dazzling variety. There are worlds within worlds in this performance."
"FOUR STARS! Highest rating." - Rex Reed, NEW YORK OBSERVER
"Go immediately and grab the first available seat to the must-see movie of the summer.
Richly chronicled characters, sharp dialogue and that stupendous centerpiece performance by Cate Blanchett are contributing factors in the best summer movie of 2013. It's better than anything you might imagine."
David Denby, NEW YORKER
"Startling and brilliant. Cate Blanchett gives the most complicated and demanding performance of her movie career."
