BLUE JASMINE (2013)
Blue Jasmine || Jasmine Francis (Cate Blanchett) disembarks in San Francisco after a flight from New York City. She takes a taxi to her sister Ginger’s (Sally Hawkins) apartment, where Ginger is dismayed to learn that Jasmine traveled first class despite claiming to be broke. Jasmine has recently suffered a nervous breakdown and, having incurred heavy debts, has been forced to seek refuge with her sister.
A series of flashbacks reveals that Jasmine’s husband, money manager Hal Francis (Alec Baldwin), was arrested for defrauding his clients. However Ginger and her husband, Augie (Andrew Dice Clay), were among Hal’s victims; he swindled them out of $200,000 in lottery winnings that Augie had wanted to start a business with, and their marriage fell apart. After that Hal committed suicide in prison after being publicly disgraced. Jasmine’s step-son Danny (Alden Ehrenreich) dropped out of Harvard and cut himself off completely from Jasmine, believing her to be complicit in Hal’s crimes. In Conclusion After Hal’s death, Jasmine began drinking heavily and abusing anti-anxiety medication. She also developed a habit of talking to herself about her past.
However Ginger is now dating a mechanic called Chili (Bobby Cannavale), whom Jasmine detests for his low breeding and coarse manners. She considers becoming an interior designer because of her “great taste” and past experience in decorating her homes. She wants to take online courses but, having no computer skills, she decides to take a class in computers to gain basic proficiency. With no income, she grudgingly takes a job as a receptionist with a dentist (Michael Stuhlbarg), who harasses her with unwanted sexual advances. When he assaults her, she fights him off and quits.
