Woody Allen's "Madoff" Movie

Woody Allen's first creative response to Bernie Madoff's massive fraud was a New Yorker humor piece. Two Madoff victims, Woody imagined, are reincarnated as vicious, vengeful lobsters.

Now he's made a movie, Blue Jasmine. Alec Baldwin plays the Madoff-like figure. Cate Blanchett plays his wife. The film depicts her plight after her husband is imprisoned and stripped of his fortune.
