Cate Blanchett stars in Woody Allen’s latest film, Blue Jasmine, a a New York City housewife that returns to live with her sister in San Francisco when her life, marriage and finances are ruined when her husband (Alec Baldwin) is arrested for white collar crimes. Joining these two actors are Sally Hawkins, Andrew Dice Clay, Bobby Cannavale, Louis C.K. Peter Sarsgaard, Michael Stuhlbarg, and Max Casella. They can all be seen in this gallery of new images that hit the web yesterday.
I’m a fan of Allen’s darker projects, a category to which this new film belongs. While his light-hearted films are primarily what he’s known for, lest we forget that his dramatic writing can be tangibly gut-wrenching.
Blue Jasmine opens on July 26th.
