Daily Mail notes that Cate plays the character Jasmine who was once incredibly wealthy and a firm member of New York’s high society, but is now broke after her marriage to Alec Baldwin’s character ends and she is forced to move in with her working class sister in San Francisco.
Seen here, actors Cate Blanchett and Peter Sarsgaard arrive at the premiere of Blue Jasmine hosted by AFI & Sony Picture Classics at AMPAS Samuel Goldwyn Theater on July 24th in Beverly Hills, California. Cate wore a fitted white and black Alexander McQueen dress, Christian Louboutin shoes and paired the look with a Roger Vivier bag and Repossiring. She looks stunning as usual. Peter wore a gray suit with a light blue dress shirt, sporting some facial hair and a buzz cut.
This is the first major film role for former Bachelorette Ali Fedotowsky who seems eager to make her debut. As for actor Bobby Cannavale, he usually plays such an eerily creepy character on HBO’s Boardwalk Empire that it will be interesting to see his performance in this film.
