Sony Pictures Classics has just debuted the first Blue Jasmine trailer, offering Woody Allen fans a pretty clear look at his latest dramedy.
The parallel between Blue Jasmin and Bernard ‘Bernie’ Madoff and the Ponzi scheme that rocked the financial world in December 2008, looks like it’s true.
Oscar-winner Cate Blanchett stars as a fashionable New York housewife who moves to San Francisco to live with her sister (Sally Hawkins) after Jasmine’s husband (Alec Baldwin) is arrested for fraud, leaving the title blue Jasmine to deal with the economic and emotional aftermath.
Louis C.K., Andrew Dice Clay, Bobby Cannavale and Max Casella play working class stiffs with whom Hawkins’ character runs.
Peter Sarsgaard, Charlie Tahan, Alden Ehrenreich, Tammy Blanchard and Michael Stuhlbarg also star in the film, which opens in select theaters starting July 26th, 2013.
Watch the awesome first trailer for the upcoming comedy drama, penned and directed by Academy Award winning filmmaker Woody Allen. There’s already Oscar buzz swirling around Blanchett’s performance.
