Ep 31: Blue Jasmine

blue_jasmine_ver2

A 10 minute spoiler-free review of Woody Allen’s superb drama starring Cate Blanchett as the spoiled self-deluding wife of a crooked financier, brought to bankruptcy when he’s arrested.  Forced to live with her working-class sister Ginger, we see Jasmine drinking heavily, talking to herself, while trying to portray herself as a serenely elegant successful woman.  The result is an Oscar-worthy performance of great subtlety and vulnerability.
