“Blue Jasmine” by Woody Allen (VOS)
Cate Blanchett, Kate Winslet and Jessica Chastain, Born just eight years old, they have been an obligatory reference on screens since the 1990s. Each one shines in its own way without having to resort to certain servitudes of stardom. They have taken risks, it is difficult to classify them and they have shown to have a special halo of magnetism and complicity to serve as an umbilical cord between their characters and the viewer. The three, moreover, have planted their respective trajectories with the flashes of great filmmakers of our time. He Ateneo de Santander dedicates a cycle these three actresses during the months of April and May.
