Cate Blanchett says she identifies with the character in her new film, "Where'd You Go, Bernadette," but she doesn't think the story about the quirky heroine is exclusively a woman's story.

Blanchett spoke about the adaptation of the Maria Semple novel at its special New York screening, where she was joined by co-star Billy Crudup and director Richard Linklater.
"Her take on life and the absurdity of being, you know, a mother and a creative individual and try to juggle marriage and your - the constant relentless inner monologue that you have as a woman in the world today," she said. "I think she's really captured that".
The comedy stars Blanchette as a loving wife and mother that becomes compelled to reconnect with her creative side. She decides to take a leap of faith and disappears on a wild adventure to rediscover her life.
"Where'd You Go, Bernadette" opens in theaters on Friday.
