'NOT 'CATE BLANCHETT'S' FINEST ROLE'
on 6 March 2014
Jasmine' (Cate Blanchett) has lived the high-life, however the government has
caught up with her husbands 'Hal's (Alec Baldwin) dubious dealings.
Now down on her luck and penniless she turns to her estranged sister 'Ginger'
Having lost her plush life style she struggles with the realities she now finds herself
'Ginger' lives in a comparatively humble home, and lives in a world that 'Jasmine'
On the verge of a nervous breakdown 'Jasmine' is frequently seen talking to herself
Her mind drifting back to yesterday whilst denying the realities of her present being.
Fantasies and lies, will they carry her through the crisis.?
'Cate Blanchett' won an Oscar for this role, there is no question that her portrayal
of the part is less than worthy of acclaim, and it would be fair to say that she is without
question one of today's greatest actresses......
For me the film is too 'chatty' and falls short of the hype it has been given, just don't
think it's everybody's cup of tea.
