Having returned from his recent cinematic tour of European capitals, Woody Allen sets his new film in San Francisco. Blue Jasmine stars Cate Blanchett as a pampered New York housewife who has it all — until her wealthy husband (Alec Baldwin) is exposed as a crook and she goes “dead broke”. So she heads to the City by the Bay to crash with her sister (Sally Hawkins). Says Blanchett’s Jasmine, “Anxiety, nightmares and a nervous breakdown — there’s only so many traumas a person can stand before they take to the streets and start screaming.” Bobby Cannavale, Louis C.K., Andrew Dice Clay, Peter Sarsgaard and Michael Stuhlbarg co-star in the film produced by Letty Aronson, Stephen Tenenbaum and Edward Walson. Sony Pictures Classics opens it July 26:
