Girl next door, sex icon, activist, fitness tycoon: Oscar®-winning actress Jane Fonda has lived a life marked by controversy, tragedy and transformation—and she’s done it all in the public eye. Directed and produced by award-winning documentarian Susan Lacy, JANE FONDA IN FIVE ACTS is an intimate look at one woman’s singular journey.

Jane Fonda has been hated as Hanoi Jane, lusted after as Barbarella and heralded as a beacon of the women’s movement. JANE FONDA IN FIVE ACTS goes to the heart of who she really is, a blend of deep vulnerability, magnetism and bravery, to show what has fueled her inspiring, remarkable and occasionally infuriating life. Drawing on 21 hours of interviews, the documentary features Fonda speaking 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 bulimia and three marriages to highly visible, yet very different men. The film also includes interviews with Fonda’s family and friends—including Tom Hayden, Ted Turner, Robert Redford and Lily Tomlin—as well as rare home movies and verité of Fonda’s busy life now, at 80 years old.
