Not sure how I feel about Woody Allen, always gave him the benefit of the doubt about allegations. But regardless of all that, his artistic self is above reproach, I’m not saying his personal self is spotless. I really don’t know. Cate Blanchett is very compelling as the title character. I cared about her. I, in some ways. could identify with her, reconstructing a life. Be warned it is a sad movie, but real in the sense of life’s disappointments. Recommended for adults, actually not a lot of gratuitous sex. And there are bright moments of relief.
