Storyline

Jasmine French used to be on the top of the heap as a New York socialite, but now is returning to her estranged sister in San Francisco utterly ruined. As Jasmine struggles with her haunting memories of a privileged past bearing dark realities she ignored, she tries to recover in her present. Unfortunately, it all proves a losing battle as Jasmine's narcissistic hangups and their consequences begin to overwhelm her. In doing so, her old pretensions and new deceits begin to foul up everyone's lives, especially her own. Written by Kenneth Chisholm (kchishol@rogers.com)

About Kate Blanchett
4 August 2013 | by (San Jose, Ca.) – See all my reviews

Kate Blanchett deserves best actress for her performance in Blue Jasmine.

What an amazing film! But more so, what an amazing actress Kate Blanchett is! I always say, great actors do not act, they just are the role. If an actor has to get into the character, then they should have done something else with their lives. Because Kate Blanchett does not act, she just IS the character. She just steps into the role she is playing. She makes it look easy, even when she plays somebody that is losing her mind. Still, as hard as it was for my wife and I to see that role she played, I am glad I saw the movie. WOW!! The closest thing I can remember to this performance, and storyline, was the famous movie "Frances" played by, of course, [ also ] the great Jessica Lange. That is another movie to see! Very intense. But really, you have to take yourself to see this movie. I love Kate Blanchett! She is of course beautiful, talented, magical and most of all, she has absolutely no ego. She throws herself into the role, and if need be, grovel and exhibit the pain of the common man ( woman ) having gone thru life's' tragedies that are unfortunately so common with today's average person.

At the movies' end I said to my wife "Kate's acting reminds me of Gollum" in that famous scene at the end of Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers, where Gollum is in the forest and his multiple personalities show themselves as he struggles to best decide the fate of his Hobbit counterparts and get that elusive ring back. I would definitely say that Kate Blanchett's characters are every bit as twisted as Gollum, and yet still has something inside of her that is still worthy of redemption. As Frodo said "I pity him Sam. I could not kill Sméagol, for I still see good in him" – to paraphrase badly.

And so it is with Jasmine, having lost herself into the world of materialism and other people's money, having hit the very bottom, can she salvage what's left of her soul and find the humanity she lost.

This movie will really make you think.

Kate Blanchett is a major blessing to the film industry and to the world.

She really deserves Best Actress in2014 Academy Awards.
