Blue Jasmine Hal and Jasmine Francis (Alec Baldwin, Cate Blanchett) are a multimillionaire couple in New York living a life of mansions, yachts, and wealthy friends. Then smooth-talking Hal is exposed as a crooked financier and goes to prison where he commits suicide. With nowhere else to go, Jasmine moves into her sister’s lower-middle-class apartment in San Francisco to try to pull herself back together again.
Jasmine’s life improves when she meets wealthy Dwight Westlake, who wants to become a California Congressman. He wants to marry Jasmine until he learns that she lied to him about who she is. Directed by Woody Allen, Blue Jasmine has received very positive critical reviews.
