The adult storyline is engaging, timely, and powerful. The acting is superb; the movie is extremely well-casted. Kate Blanchett should definitely receive award nominations for this performance! And as usual, the directing is excellent.

Wonderfully classic Woody Allen! And with an award-winning performance by Kate Blanchett, who could ask for more? A funny and delightful parody of the wealthy life style vs. the way the rest of us live.

I'm not a big fan of Woody Allen movies, but I'd heard good things about this one. I'm so glad I caught it in the theaters. Kate Blanchett embodies Jasmine so entirely I kept forgetting I was watching Kate Blanchett. The rest of the cast, as well, portrayed the compelling story line in a gifted manner. My only complaint was the ending.

Don't bother with the voting, Cate Blanchett is Best Actress - hands down. If you like great acting, that is probably the only reason to see this movie.
That being said, this is a depressing movie about an unstable woman, in which everything possible goes wrong. Along the way, everyone she touches is impacted in a negative way. This movie is painful to watch. Unless you are into depressing movies, skip this one.

Saw the film twice already, and that never happens. The first time, I was enthralled by Cate Blanchet's performance. The next time by all the other performers. Already it is my favorite Woody Allan film.
