After too long a wait, I am kicking off our Fall movie season with Woody Allen's latest film, Blue Jasmine. This falls into his character study films along with Annie Hall, Alice and Hannah and Her Sisters. Cate Blanchett's Jasmine has an idyllic life of wealth and fun until her husband (Alec Baldwin) pulls the rug out from her.
With no job skills and few friends, she turns to her sister, played by Sally Hawkins (Made in Dagenham, Happy Go Lucky) for support. Her careening into a train wreck, Blanchett's performance is already generating Oscar buzz.
We'll be going to the Esquire theater - not our favorite venue, but the only place it's showing in town.

Afterward we'll head to Pho on 6th for dinner and discussion.
NOTE - Please keep your RSVP current - if your plans change, update it and let someone on the waiting list come.
