Cate Blanchett stars as a rich, spoiled, NY socialite who suddenly finds herself betrayed by her husband and is forced to seek refuge with her blue collar sister. Woody Allen directs this ensemble cast, but it is the tour de force performance by Blanchett that is the star of this film. There are reflections of “A Streetcar Named Desire” that seem familiar, yet under Allen’s deft touch, different and funny.
