Actors: Cate Blanchett

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Blue Jasmine

This movie is an inter-personal drama about a women that is coming to terms with the loss of her fabulous super-rich life that was provided by her supposedly-rich husband who was not truthful and instead was conducting a Ponzi scheme fraud. Her beautiful life is disrupted and she tries her best to regain her composure but, in essence, she is completely lost and has no way to navigate survival in the real world.

She enlists the help of her estranged sister, who is so kind to allow her to come back into her life, even though the husband of the women stole the entire amount of the unexpected lottery winnings from her sister as part of his con game.

The sisters truly love each other, but come from very different worlds. The rich one is stuck in judgmental behavior, and the poorer one feels lost as to how to explain her much better life based on reality to her sister that still hangs on to a fantasy that no longer exists.
Best part of story, including ending: The contrast between the haves and the have-nots, shows that the regular people, not the rich ones, have a better life.

Best scene in story: When the ex-husband of the sister confronts our lead character in front of her new boyfriend and clearly reveals the deception. It is a very powerful moment in the film.

Opinion about the main character: I sympathize with her troubles but I do not feel she is blameless. In the end she gets what is coming to her and that feels justified.
