FONDA’S STILL FULL OF LIFE

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - TV Guide - - Don't Miss This Week... -

THERE’S ab­so­lutely no doubt Jane Fonda (pic­tured) has packed plenty into her 80 years on this planet. An ac­claimed ac­tor, con­tro­ver­sial ac­tivist and de­voted daugh­ter of screen icon, Henry, as well as a wife three times over – she’s played plenty of roles in that time.

But if you think you know this su­per­star, think again, as this fas­ci­nat­ing four-part docu-drama il­lus­trates. Draw­ing on 21 hours of in­ter­views – filmed over two years – it’s an hon­est, vul­ner­a­ble and re­flec­tive Fonda we meet in this small screen spe­cial.

The brash anti-Viet­nam pro­tes­tor now has her re­grets, as she ad­mit­ted on her re­cent pro­mo­tional tour of Aus­tralia. She also man­aged to flirt up a storm with Tommy Lit­tle while here, show­ing there’s still plenty of life left in this stel­lar woman yet. A se­quel per­haps?
