Trivia

Jane Fonda's character in the movie attended the Woodstock Festival in 1969 while pregnant; her water broke during Jimi Hendrix's rendition of "The Star-Spangled Banner". Fonda actually knew little about Woodstock (at the time, she was already over 30 and living in Europe), and didn't relate to this part of the story, until shown a documentary by co-star Catherine Keener. Watching Hendrix's set in the documentary, Fonda later explained, "I got it." See more »

Excellent Movie
24 June 2012 | by (New York) – See all my reviews

Kudos to Bruce Beresford for making a really great film with heart and soul. All the cast are amazing - especially Jane Fonda as the grandmother, she really pops in this one. Chase Crawford is hot and homegrown, as is the Javier Bardem - look a like - Jeffrey Dean Morgan. We'd like to see more of him. Catherine Keener is believable as the uptight attorney. I felt a little cheated that Patricia Arquette was not in more scenes, one can only surmise she hit the cutting room floor. Loved seeing the Woodstock locals and the location used as characters. I was in the story for the complete ride. Timeless story. A must see. Why is it only in one theater here in New York?
