Blue Jasmine

I went to a movie by myself yesterday.

That large coke cost almost as much as my matinee ticket! 

I love movies but I hardly ever get out to see them.  I realized that this is the perfect opportunity for me to check out great movies and enrich my life!  I am a cultured chick so I picked Woody Allen's new film first.  

Blue Jasmine is about a high society gal (played by the amazing Cate Blanchett) who has to start her life over in San Francisco after her husband's ponzi scheme falls apart and she's left with nothing.  Well....if you count a beautiful wardrobe, a Hermes bag and Louis Vuitton luggage as nothing!

Jasmine moves in with her sister and tries to get her life back on track.  The poor thing has a little zanax and vodka problem and might be crazy.  We learn about her old life in a series of flashbacks.  For a little while, things are going great because Jasmine meets a substantial guy, he falls in love with her but it doesn't last.  

And that's all I'm going to say about that!

Cate Blanchett did an amazing job with this character and I wouldn't be surprised if she gets nominated for an award.  I have to say, I really enjoyed the movie even thought the old guy behind me said it was the worst movie he's ever seen.  I suspect that is the reason I liked it!  

I give Blue Jasmine 4 out of 5 Vodka Martinis with a Lemon Twist! 


  1. Fun! Haven't heard of that movie. Sounds promising!

  2. Haven't heard of ot either, we live in the sticks, so I may have to wait for DVD!

  3. I have never gone to a movie myself... I think I would feel very awkward until the movie stated then I would love it

  4. I just watched a Woody Allen movie, too - To Rome With Love. It was a little weird. I didn't like it.

    I also don't like going to the movies by myself. Or at all. Renting them from my living room with the remote control? That's more like it. :o)

  5. I love Cate Blanchett. I may have to rent this when it comes out.


I love you. You are my best friend! Your hair looks fantastic today!
