Movie Trailer – Blue Jasmine

After everything in her life falls to pieces, including her marriage to wealthy businessman Hal, elegant New York socialite Jasmine moves into her sister Ginger’s modest apartment in San Francisco to try to pull herself back together again.

Throughout his career, Woody Allen has created many captivating female characters portrayed by some of the world’s greatest actresses. Certain to take her place in this gallery of multifaceted, complex, and richly observed women is Jasmine, the troubled heroine of Allen’s new film Blue Jasmine, portrayed by the extraordinary Cate Blanchett. She stars alongside an incredible supporting cast including Alec Baldwin, Sally Hawkins, Bobby Cannavale, Peter Sarsgaard, Louis C.K. and Michael Stuhlbarg, in this emotionally powerful drama that is wise, tender and funny.

Movie Tickets Ts + Cs. VALIDITY: Tickets valid at any participating cinema from September 12 (excludes discount days, public holidays and after 5pm on Saturdays).
