The cast of Woody Allen’s latest offering ‘Blue Jasmine’ were out in force for the premiere at the Museum Of Modern Art in New York.

‘Blue Jasmine’ stars Cate Blanchett as Jasmine, a woman in crisis who stays with her less affluent sister after her life in New York falls apart.

“It’s a fall from grace story. It’s someone who walks that terrifying borderline between fantasy and reality and ultimately opts for fantasy and that way lies madness. It’s not a morality tale. Hopefully it’s an entertaining, absurd and moving story, but that was what I was trying to inhabit,” says Cate Blanchett.

The film also stars Alec Baldwin, Sally Hawkins and Peter Sarsgaard.

Sarsgaard analysed his character: “I play a person whose very ambitious, who wants to be a politician and I think not very good in seeing what’s right in front of him, ignoring the truth of what what’s right in front of him, but has basically good ideas and good ideals, but if you’re someone who can’t pay attention to what the truth is, you’re essentially also a kind of liar.”

Blue Jasmine opens in the UK in September.
