This weekend The Grey and I watched Blue Jasmine, the film written and directed by Woody Allen, for the second time and loved it even more.
Cate Blanchett plays a New York socialite who falls from grace and turns to her adopted sister, Ginger, (played by Sally Hawkins who I’m a big fan of) who lives in a shabby San Francisco apartment and is a single mum with two young boys.
Jasmine, as the Cate Blanchett figure decides to call herself, is deeply troubled and in denial about what has actually happened to her and is a dreadful judge of character alluding to men with social status rather than those who are trustworthy.
Cate won an Oscar for best actress for the film and deservedly so; she is brilliant.
I thought it was a shame that Sally Hawkins didn’t get best supporting actress as I thought she was also pivotal to the film’s success.
