Blue Jasmine Movie Quotes

"Blue Jasmine" movie quotes tell the tale of an affluent woman who loses everything and is forced to find herself again after moving in with her sister. The film was written and directed by the legendary filmmaker Woody Allen and produced by Letty Aronson, Stephen Tenenbaum and Edward Walson. "Blue Jasmine" opens in select theaters in New York and Los Angeles on July 26, 2013.

In "Blue Jasmine," the title character of Jasmine (Cate Blanchett) is living the high life in New York City as a socialite and wife to affluent businessman Hal (Alec Baldwin). Everything changes dramatically when she and Hal split and all of her money is seized by the government following Hal's shady business deals. This leaves Jasmine alone, distraught and broke.

With little left in her life, Jasmine travels (in first class) to live with her sister Ginger (Sally Hawkins) in San Francisco. This move is a tough transition from Jasmine's formerly lavish lifestyle as Ginger lives simply, something only made worse when Ginger's friends (portrayed by Bobby Cannavale, Louis C.K. and Andrew Dice Clay) question Jasmine's motives and intent. Jasmine struggles to keep it together underneath all of the pressures, which proves to be quite the difficult task.

"Blue Jasmine" joins a number of other stellar movies already playing in the summer of 2013 including "The Wolverine," "The To Do List," "Only God Forgives," "Girl Most Likely,"
2 "The Hangover Part III," "The Great Gatsby," "Oblivion," "G.I. Joe: Retaliation," and "Olympus Has Fallen."
