“Blue Jasmine”

Hi everyone!

I’m sure you have all heard about the “Homecoming” events this week, like Hoedown, Durfee Dance and all…

Well, as someone who didn’t attend to any of those events (I’m not awkward, I just appreciate some alone time), I can tell you it is okay if you are not a fan of these kinds of activities; there are always other options…

So last week, I’ve realized that it’s been a while since I treated myself with going to a movie theater, therefore have decided to go see “Blue Jasmine” at the Knickerbocker Theater in downtown Holland.

The theater is owned and operated by Hope College; built in 1911, it hosted many shows and events. Usually there aren’t many popular or Hollywood movies shown, but they are definitely quality movies there. Not to mention that entrance is free for Hope College students and they have a legit popcorn machine inside…

Here is the program for you guys to take a peek at:


So far, I have not been disappointed by their movie choices; including the movie “Blue Jasmine”. Directed by Woody Allen, the film stars Cate Blanchett, Alec Baldwin, Sally Hawkins and Bobby Cannavale. Considering that it got a 7.8 (yes folks, 7.8) from imdb.com, it is absolutely worth your 98 minutes.

It says on the website that the movie is PG-13, but don’t worry, nothing inappropriate. I would say it is safe to watch with your parents, nothing there to make things “awks.” My assumption about this rating is maybe because there are a lot of alcoholic scenes and can get emotionally disturbing. However, the acting is definitely makes the heartbreak worth it.

Here are the trailer’s link and description of the movie for your pleasure:

“A New York socialite, deeply troubled and in denial, arrives in San Francisco to impose upon her sister. She looks a million, but isn’t bringing money, peace, or love…”
