While Cate Blanchett's performance is worthy of applause, the film is not incredibly funny, or emotionally moving like most of Allen's other efforts.

A wandering film about the every day lives of several women. The moral of the story here seems to be clouded, or there is no clear one. One of the main characters betrays her cheating husband to the FBI and as a result loses a fortune, ending up moving in with her sister. This is a story about lifestyle, consequence and settling for what you have, regardless of how miserable or unfulfilling it is. A bleak tale with a questionable message, from one of the most questionable directors of our time.

Cate Blanchett was indeed marvelous! Also Sally Hawkins and the rest of the cast made a good support to a powerful character, Jasmine.

One thing you can't argue about Woody Allen as a director - he really does bring out the best in the actresses he casts. Cate Blanchett is at the top of her game and co-star Sally Hawkins is right behind. Though I couldn't exactly connect with the characters or story, I still found it fascinating simply because of the performances. I didn't like it as much as Midnight in Paris, but as a person who usually finds Allen films a tad underwhelming, this was a success.
