Bonus screening of Woody Allen's Blue Jasmine has been added to the end of this event!
Special $25 tickets now available in the Orchestra Rear section.
“In the year that many critics are hailing her most recent—and perhaps greatest—performance (in Blue Jasmine), the Film Society is delighted to celebrate the career of Cate Blanchett. Since her breakthrough in Oscar and Lucinda in 1997, Ms. Blanchett has consistently mesmerized audiences with some of the boldest screen performances of the past twenty years.” —Rose Kuo, Film Society Executive Director
A recipient of multiple Academy Award® nominations and a Best Supporting Actress winner for her portrayal of Katharine Hepburn in The Aviator (2004), Ms. Blanchett first received widespread attention in Hollywood in Oscar and Lucinda (1997) opposite fellow NYFF honoree Ralph Fiennes. Since then, she has continued to captivate critics and audiences alike with such indelible film credits as Elizabeth (1998), The Talented Mr. Ripley (1999), I’m Not There (2007), The Curious Case of Benjamin Button (2008), and most recently, Woody Allen’s Blue Jasmine (2013).
Join us for this special evening as we celebrate the Academy Award® and Golden Globe-winning actress, featuring an intimate on-stage conversation and a screening of Woody Allen's Blue Jasmine. Support for this evening is provided by ELLE.
