For the straight set, the year’s most acclaimed performance belongs to Cate Blanchett as the unhinged, train engine of social destruction who blasts her formerly well-ordered life to smithereens, alienating friends and family with the effectiveness of a atom bomb in her absolute selfishness. However, it’s not like a whole bunch of physically and socially awkward role-playing viewers are going to exactly identify with the plight of a former doyenne of the Manhattan social scene. Instead, the actor they will undoubtedly call their own BLUE JASMINE is an Austinite named Sam Eidson, who takes on Orc-like fury as Scott, an […]Read On »
