Blue Jasmine - 3 p.m. Saturday 14/9 at the Nova

We will meet at the Nova Restaurant from 2:15 p.m. onwards, Stefan -[masked]

"Richly chronicled characters, sharp dialogue and that stupendous centerpiece performance by Cate Blanchett are contributing factors in the best summer movie of 2013 and one of the most memorable Woody Allen movies ever.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: even on an off day, Woody Allen is better than everyone else on Sunday. But Blue Jasmine is not Woody between triumphs. This is the first-class work of a great talent at the top of his game, cooking on four burners with resolve and focus. This is Woody’s take on A Streetcar Named Desire, with Cate Blanchett combining aspects of her staggering stage performance in the recent Australian tour stopover of the Tennessee Williams classic at the Brooklyn Academy of Music with enough contemporary Diane Keaton neuroses to shed new light on the Freudian forces that drive modern Woody Allen heroines to glamorous self-destruction. Think Blanche DuBois meets Annie Hall. Then go immediately and grab the first available seat to the must-see movie of the summer."

    I really enjoyed this new offering from Woody! Some people live their lives with so much denial! I kinda felt so for her in the end! The talk with the group afterwards was very rewarding too, in the cafe!

    Do we need to pre purchase tickets so we all get a seat?

      If you are not likely to arrive early that might be a good idea - it's the opening week.
