I saw Woody Allen's Blue Jasmine earlier this week and while a few have started posting their reviews, I've stayed clear of reading any of them until I finish writing my own for fear of their opinions seeping into my subconscious. However, there can't be a single review out there that isn't touting Cate Blanchett's performance as a formidable Oscar front-runner... because it is. Blanchett owns the title role as a New York socialite that has lost everything and is forced to move to San Francisco and live with her sister Ginger (Sally Hawkins). Lost and bewildered, Jasmine arrives to find she and Ginger couldn't be leading their lives any more differently, a fact that plays heavily on the film's narrative considering it was Jasmine's husband's (Alec Baldwin) shady business dealings that landed Jasmine in her current predicament, her sister in financial troubles and her now, ex-husband behind bars. »
