This movie blog is written, in part, to share movie heroes that can help inspire and bring out your inner strengths and potential. And then there are films that feature performances of a lead that shows you an alternate, darker path when faced with a life crisis. One of these films is Blue Jasmine.
Cate Blanchett’s performance is mesmerizing as Jasmine in this movie. It was also heartbreaking and sad. I saw a tragic path I could have taken when life has hit me hard in the past. On a deeper level Blanchett’s character spoke to me of the actions and attitudes NOT to take when dealing with life, career and financial crisis. For me, that was the silver lining within the darkness of Jasmine’s story.
Blue Jasmine (2013)
The drama film, Blue Jasmine, is written and directed by Woody Allen and is about a New York socialite named Jasmine (Cate Blanchett) going through a life crisis and moves into her sister’s modest apartment in San Francisco. Blanchett’s performance is just incredible as were other characters such as Jasmine’s sister Ginger (Sally Hawkins), Ginger’s boyfriend Chili (Bobby Cannavale) and ex-husband Augie (a surprisingly moving Andrew Dice Clay). See: movie trailer
If you've seen Blue Jasmine please let me know what you thought about the film. And I'd love to know how Blanchett’s performance and character affected you.
