Legendary writer and director Woody Allen is about to hit us with yet another film. This time with the film Blue Jasmine.
After everything in her life falls to pieces, including her marriage to wealthy businessman Hal(Alec Baldwin),elegant New York socialite Jasmine (Cate Blanchett) moves into her sister Ginger's (Sally Hawkins) modest apartment in San Francisco to try to pull herself back together again. Jasmine arrives in San Francisco in a fragile mental state, her head reeling from the cocktail of anti-depressants she's on. While still able to project her aristocratic bearing, Jasmine is emotionally precarious and lacks any practical ability to support herself. She disapproves of Ginger's boyfriend Chili (Bobby Cannavale), who she considers another "loser" like Ginger's ex-husband Augie (Andrew Dice Clay). Ginger, recognizing but not fully understanding her sister's psychological instability, suggests that she pursue interior design, a career she correctly intuits that Jasmine won't feel is beneath her. In the meantime, Jasmine begrudgingly accepts work as the receptionist in a dentist's office, where she attracts the unwanted attentions of her boss, Dr. Flicker (Michael Stuhlbarg).
that her sister might be right about her poor taste in men, Ginger starts seeing Al(LouisC.K.), a sound engineer whom she considers as a step up from Chili. Jasmine sees a potential lifeline when she meets Dwight (Peter Sarsgaard), a diplomat who is quickly smitten with her beauty, sophistication and style. Jasmine's flaw is that she derives her worth from the way she's perceived by others, while she herself is blind to what is going around her. Delicately portrayed by a regal Cate Blanchett, Jasmine earns our compassion because she is the unwitting instrument of her own downfall.
Woody Allen's new drama BLUE JASMINE is about the dire consequences that can result when people avert their eyes from reality and the truth they don't want to see.
Allen has won four Academy Awards over his long career beginning back in 1965! The writer and director has brought us such films as Casino Royale, Midnight in Paris, Vicky Cristina Barcelona, Annie Hall and 80 more! Yes 80 films! He has been nominated for another astounding 19 Oscars!
It is no secret that Cate Blanchett is one of the greatest actresses of our time. This woman can do no wrong when she hits the screen. From playing Elizabeth I in Elizabeth to The Talented Mr. Ripley to The Lord of the Rings films to playing Katharine Hepburn in The Aviator. She nails it every single time! The actress was nominated for four Academy Awards for her roles in the films Elizabeth, Notes on a Scandal, I'm Not There and Elizabeth: The Golden Age. She took home the Oscar for The Aviator in 2004. She has won two Golden Globe Awards and been nominated for five others.

21 of our Miami talent have been requested to audition for an upcoming Sean Paul music video!
The Jamaican dancehall superstar first sparked the world in 2002 with his breakout hit, "Gimme The Light". Right after his multi-platinum, Grammy-winning classic album, Dutty Rock, he dropped the 2005 RIAA platinum smash The Trinity. That album led off with the Top 10 single "We Be Burnin'," followed by the #1 smash "Temperature." The Kingston-born rhyme slinger has already sold more than 10 million albums worldwide, and has become the most successful Jamaican artist of all time on the U.S. charts - spurred by a trio of #1 pop singles, and five top ten hits. But despite his scorching track record, Sean Paul is taking nothing for granted. His fourth album is called Imperial Blaze.
"Imperial Blaze is like the king's fire," says the keeper of dancehall's flame.
The production credits on Imperial Blaze includes from Don Corleone to Craig "Leftside" Parkes (son of legendary Jamaican bandleader Lloyd Parkes), to Jeremy Harding (who doubles as Sean's manager), to Arif Cooper (son of Ibo Cooper from the famed reggae band Third World) to Delano of Renaissance Disco and even Sean's own brother, Jazon "Jigzagula" Henriques of Coppershot Sound. And for the first time, Sean himself produced a track on the album entitled "I Know You Like It." But nearly half the album's 19 tracks were produced by the 19-year old Stephen "Di Genius" McGregor, whose Big Ship/Di Genius Records label has dominated the dancehall scene for the past year. "I first met Stephen when he was like eight years old and I was in my 20s," Sean reveals. "His father Freddie McGregor is a king of reggae music, so Stephen was born into this. Now he's running the place, and the chemistry we have is something special. When you find someone who gets you as an artist, you can really push yourself and take it to a different place." The songwriting on Imperial Blaze represents a giant leap forward in Sean Paul's artistry. "There's plenty of party tracks, but we're not just singing about the same old thing," he explains. High-energy cuts like "Lace It" on McGregor's "Daybreak" riddim are already sparking the worldwide dancehall circuit, but other cuts find Sean in a more reflective mode. "My music has reached the point where it's expanding," he says. "I'm talking about relationships and different things we all go through in life."

Kicked out of her latest sugar-daddy's Hollywood Hills mansion one day, however, Vivienne is suddenly left homeless, and without a penny to her name. With nowhere else to go, she breaks into the apartment of an old boyfriend, only to find Dickie Marsden now living there - a struggling actor just like herself, but with none of her self-delusions and complete lack of ethics.
When the prospect of an upcoming film role promises the rejuvenation of her career, Vivienne is forced to team up with Dickie and her new unpaid intern Caitlin, learning what it really takes to succeed in this town. Through the misadventures of this odd trio, Vivienne begrudgingly realizes that despite Dickie's comparative lack of success, and Caitlin's blissful naivety, they may be the key to helping her reattain her previous fame and discover what she is truly destined to become in this world.
