Blue Jasmine(bc Sunday)
After everything in her life falls to pieces, including her marriage with a wealthy businessman, elegant New York socialite Jasmine moves into her sister Ginger's modest apartment in San Francisco. She arrives with a fragile mental state and lacks any practical ability to support herself. Meanwhile she disapproves Ginger's boyfriend, lifestyle and apartment to establish her own sense of priority. Ginger, recognizing but not fully understanding her sister's psychological instability, suggests that she pursue a career. In the meantime, Jasmine sees a potential lifeline when she meets Dwight, a diplomat who is quickly smitten with her beauty and sophistication. Jasmine's flaw is that she derives her worth from the way she's perceived by others, while she herself is blind to what is going around her. Delicately portrayed by Cate Blanchett, Jasmine earns our compassion because she is the unwitting instrument of her own downfall.
