Synopsis

Woody Allen is well-known for creating neurotic, dysfunctional characters, many of which are played by him. Though he tends now to appear less frequently in his films, the stars he directs — in this case Cate Blanchett — become vessels for his nervous vulnerability and charming funniness. Here, the famed director blends comedy with more serious drama, in a loose homage to the work of Tennessee Williams. Blanchett plays Jasmine, who is 'blue' because her status as a wealthy New York socialite has been destroyed, along with her marriage to a shamed conman. Arriving in San Francisco to stay with her sister, Ginger, whose less high-class ways she is disdainful of, Jasmine tries to build a new life, while teetering on the edge of mental breakdown.

What our educators say

"We are currently screening The Wizard of Oz, profound film that it is, and the last film Wall-E. It's been rewarding observing the KS1 6 year olds run the gamut of emotions from wonder to sadness to joy. "
