As is the way with Woody Allen movies, we’ve heard little about the plot of Blue Jasmine, meaning that trailer is our first proper chance to see what the movie is all about.
The only earlier info was that it follows ‘the final stages of an acute crisis and a life of a fashionable New York housewife (Cate Blanchett)’. The actress’ character, Jasmine, is used to wealth and privilege, thanks to her husband (Alec Baldwin). However, when everything falls apart and Jasmine starts to have a nervous breakdown, she moves to San Francisco where she can stay with her sister Ginger (Sally Hawkins).
Louis C.K., Bobby Cannavale, Andrew Dice Clay, Peter Sarsgaard and Michael Stuhlbarg also star. It hits US cinemas on July 26th, with a September 20th UK date set.
