Did You Know?

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 »

Great Movie
20 June 2012 | by (Roanoke Virginia) – See all my reviews

This is a really great movie.

I cannot understand why anyone would say otherwise because there is not a dull moment in this movie as it has a bit of everything, from laughing to crying because the actors are able to have you feel what they are portraying.

It is a movie about accepting others for who they are and most importantly it is about forgiveness and learning to enjoy life.

I must add what wonderful acting there is from all of the entire crew. Anytime a movie can pull you in to the point of being able to feel their emotions then you know that they have done a great job.

Jane Fonda is just terrific. Jeffrey Dean Morgan was as amazing as he always is. I have to add how cute Chance Crawford is.

It is a great reminder that sometimes we all need to slow down and take a look around us and just enjoy the moment we are in.
