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 Gingers (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 shes on. While still able to project her aristocratic bearing, Jasmine is emotionally precarious and lacks any practical ability to support herself. She disapproves of Gingers boyfriend Chili (Bobby Cannavale), who she considers another "loser" like Gingers ex-husband Augie (Andrew Dice Clay). Ginger, recognizing but not fully understanding her sisters psychological instability, suggests that she pursue interior design, a career she correctly intuits that Jasmine wont feel is beneath her. In the meantime, Jasmine begrudgingly accepts work as the receptionist in a dentists 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. Jasmines flaw is that she derives her worth from the way shes 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 Allens new drama Blue Jasmine is about the dire consequences that can result when people avert their eyes from reality and the truth they dont want to see. Synopsis 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 Gingers (Sally Hawkins) modest apartment in San Francisco to try to pull herself back together again.
