TV Preview: Jane Fonda in Five Acts
An in-depth documentary sees Jane Fonda look back at her career, loves and politics.
Dir Susan Lacy
Susan Lacy’s documentary is divided into five chapters that mark five distinct periods in Jane Fonda’s life, named after the key men in her story (from her father to her partners), yet the connective tissue of the film is Fonda’s own reflections. Her self-aware and articulate comments on the intertwining of her family’s legacy, her career, politics and personal life make for an insightful and entertaining watch.
