Short Movie Review
Known for his movies to be either hit or miss, director Woody Allen returns to true form in his 2013 film Blue Jasmine. The movie benefits from a strong cast including a knock out performance by Cate Blanchett. Blanchett stars as a woman in a mid life crisis with many social and even some medical problems as she struggles to find out what she's doing next in her life.
The actress leads the movie in a tremendous performance. Her ability to act is on full display on this movie, and her performance is what makes the film good & interesting. Like most Woody Allen movies, it doesn't really have a beginning or ending, but the acting makes up for that. If Cate Blanchett doesn't deserve the oscar for this film, there's something wrong with Hollywood today.
