Woody Allen puts Cate Blanchett through the wringer in this BLUE JASMINE trailer!!
Howdy do, everyone, Papa Vinyard here.
Another year, another Woody Allen movie, and this one seems like a return to his New York roots, after his last two features with Paris and Rome right there in their respective titles. This one has Cate Blanchett playing a Manhattan housewife whose wealthy husband, played by Alec Baldwin, turns out to be a philandering crook who loses everything, sending her back to her San Francisco roots. As with all Allen features, the cast he managed to pull together is crazy, with Bobby Cannavale, Peter Sarsgaard, Michael Stuhlbarg, Sally Hawkins, and the one-two punch of Louis C.K. and Andrew Dice Clay(!!) rounding out the roster. The trailer doesn't reveal too many details, other than that Hawkins plays Blanchett's sister and that both characters seem very much in that stereotypical neurotic, Woody Allen vein. It definitely seems human, funny, and low-key, putting it right in Allen's comfort zone. I love the idea of Allen doing another movie at least partially set in his hometown, and, as always, look forward to some killer dialogue and some memorable performances from his latest effort.
BLUE JASMINE opens July 26th.
