Sony Pictures Classics has released the first trailer for writer/director Woody Allen’s Blue Jasmine. The film centers around a New York City housewife (Cate Blanchett) struggling through a life crisis who travels to San Francisco to be with her sister (Sally Hawkins) after her husband (Alec Baldwin) turns out to be a white-collar criminal.
Time for the annual Woody Allen film; every year since 1982, a Woody Allen-directed film has been released into theaters. The dramedy with a lead character going through a life crisis isn’t necessarily a brand-new concept for iconic filmmaker. However, stick the magnificent Cate Blanchett as the lead, and surround her with a top-tier supporting cast, and you have the Woody Allen formula.
The cast includes Sally Hawkins, Alec Baldwin, Andrew Dice Clay, Bobby Cannavale, Louis C.K., Michael Stuhlbarg and Peter Sarsgaard.
