CULT – 0

Verdict – 4/5

Pros –
1) Woody Allen’s typical non-linear narration.
2) Sally Hawkins as Ginger
3) Cate Blanchett – powerful performance portraying the fall of a rich woman and her absolute meltdown.

 

Cons –
1) Though branded as Comedy-Drama, there are no moments of laughter. Rather too gloomy.

 

Quote –
Jasmine: Anxiety, nightmares and a nervous breakdown, there’s only so many traumas a person can withstand until they take to the streets and start screaming.
