Jane Fonda in Five Acts
Girl next door, sex kitten, fitness tycoon, high-profile activist, Oscar(R)-winner. Jane Fonda has lived a life marked by controversy, tragedy and transformation--and she's done it all in the public eye. This documentary, directed and produced by acclaimed filmmaker Susan Lacy, draws on 21 hours of recent interviews with Fonda, who speaks candidly and frankly about her life, loves, causes and missteps. She explores the pain of her mother's suicide, her famous father's emotional unavailability, 30 years of an eating disorder, and three marriages to highly visible, yet diametrically opposed, men (Roger Vadim, Tom Hayden and Ted Turner).
