Woody Allen interview, with Sally Hawkins and Mike Leigh

With Mark Lawson, who interviews writer and director Woody Allen.

Allen's new film Blue Jasmine stars Cate Blanchett as Jasmine, a wealthy Manhattan socialite, and Sally Hawkins as Ginger, her poor sister in San Francisco. They end up together when Jasmine's husband is declared bankrupt.

Blue Jasmine is already one of Woody Allen's most financially successful films, proving a hit at the US box office.

In this Front Row special, Mark talks to Woody Allen about Blue Jasmine, his unique methods of working and why he never watches his own films. And there are interviews with Mike Leigh, who Allen cites as one of his favourite directors, and actress Sally Hawkins, who has worked with both directors.

Producer Timothy Prosser.
