Blue Jasmine

This weekend, I saw the newest Woody Allen film. Unlike most people, I adored his latest films, including 'To Rome With Love', but I have to say that 'Blue Jasmine' is probably one of the best I have seen in a while. Obviously, he is one of the most iconic film makers alive, but what made this so fab was that it is essentially based on the play I am currently studying at college, A Streetcar Named Desire by Tennessee Williams. Despite the fact it is denied that he based the film on this play, it's blatantly a fact, and I adore both of them if I'm honest. Cate Blanchett gave an astounding performance as a woman descending into insanity after living a life of luxury that went wrong, almost identical to the character of Blanche DuBois created by T. Williams. Sally Hawkins was also just marvellous as the younger adopted sister, almost the opposite of Blanchett's role, a loveable character similar to Blanche's sister, Stella. But I don't want to just give away the whole plot of the film and the play, so I deffo recommend that you see/read them, and if you haven't already, please watch the film version of A Streetcar because Marlon Brando as Stanley was literally one of the most attractive male roles in any film ever made. Real talk.

Marlon Brando, you absolute SPICE


9 out of 5 for my judgement of Brando's beauty. Gotta keep it even. 

Before I love you and leave you, please watch this funky fresh video starring the beautiful Angelica. LOOK AT HER. WHY CAN I NOT BE THIS GROOVY.
