After everything in her life falls to pieces, including her marriage to wealthy businessman Hal, elegant New York socialite Jasmine (Cate Blanchett) moves into her sister Ginger’s modest apartment in San Francisco to try to pull herself back together again. The film is about the dire consequences that can result when people avert their eyes from reality and the truth they don’t want to see. Cate Blanchett won the Oscar for best actress for this role in 2014.
