Tour-de-force and definitely an Oscar nom (if not a win) for Cate Blanchett. After everything in her life falls to pieces, including her marriage to wealthy businessman Hal (Alec Baldwin), elegant New York socialite Jasmine (Blanchett) moves into her sister Ginger’s (Sally Hawkins) modest apartment in San Francisco to try to pull herself back together again. As she tries to cope with her new life — which is considerably less elegant than her life back East — she dreams of her past life’s glamour, teetering on an emotional tightrope between her troubled past and a fresh start. Extras: “Notes From the Red Carpet,” in which the cast discusses making the film and their take on the characters; “Blue Jasmine” cast press conference with Cate Blanchett, Peter Saarsgard and Andrew Dice Clay.
