Jasmine (Cate Blanchett) was a Manhattan socialite, on top of the world. But when her world came crashing down, she lost everything, and she has no idea how to survive as a normal person. Flat broke, she head to San Francisco to move in with her sister. But though she tries to get a job and live a normal life, her hangups over her rich past keeps popping up to sink her.

This is a very neurotic film. Cate Blanchett does a really good job as the nutty sister. Surprise, this is a Woody Allen film, so it makes sense that it’s utterly neurotic and stars a lost soul who fails at everything she tries to do. I actually enjoyed watching this. I’ve not been crazy over Woody’s films, but this one is better than most of the ones I’ve seen lately. It’s like the typical Woody film, so if you’re not a fan of his films, you might have a tough time with this one. Woody does Manhattan very well, but I haven’t seen him nail the lifestyle in San Francisco as well as this. Andrew Dice Clay appears in a role as the boyfriend of Jasmine’s sister. He’s really good. The sister’s are both looking for love in all the wrong places, and it’s a typical Woody film with it’s share of chuckles, along with some serious problems. Not for everybody, but if you do enjoy Woody’s everyday paranoid and inferiority complex, this is one of his better movies in a long time.
