Love or Hate Her, A Controversial Icon Tells Her Story in the ‘Jane Fonda in Five Acts’ Trailer

Jane Fonda in Five Acts Trailer

From Hollywood royalty to American outcast, Jane Fonda has been in the spotlight for most of her life, for better and worse. The daughter of Henry Fonda and the brother of Peter Fonda became a screen sensation with her roles in films like Barbarella and Cat Ballou. However, her activism in the ’60s made her a controversial figure, so controversial in fact that she’s still dealing with mistakes she made over 40 years ago. Now the life of someone equally revered and reviled is the subject of a new HBO documentary from director Susan Lacy, Jane Fonda in Five Acts. Lacy, who directed last year’s documentary Spielberg, examines the life of Jane Fonda through hours of candid interviews with the controversial icon and interviews with others, including Robert Redford, Lily Tomlin, and her ex-husband Ted Turner.

Obviously, no matter how much Fonda expresses regrets over her actions during the Vietnam War, there will be plenty that just have no interest in hearing a word that Jane Fonda has to say. The actress says that she’s beginning her final act of her life, and wants to set the record straight about her complex life. Whether you loathe or love Jane Fonda, perhaps there’s something that can be learned from her personal reflection on a life of success and controversy. HBO will debut Jane Fonda in Five Acts on Monday September 24th.

The official synopsis for Jane Fonda in Five Acts:

The documentary draws on 21 hours of interviews with Fonda, who speaks candidly and frankly about her life and her missteps. She explores the pain of her mother’s suicide, her father’s emotional unavailability, 30 years of an eating disorder and three marriages to highly visible, yet diametrically opposed, men. JANE FONDA IN FIVE ACTS also includes interviews with family and friends — Robert Redford, Lily Tomlin, producer Paula Weinstein and former spouses Tom Hayden and Ted Turner — as well as rare home movies and verité footage of the 80-year-old Fonda’s busy life today at, as she puts it, “the beginning of my last act.”
