A peek into the life of a complex woman
2 October 2018 | by cekadahSee all my reviews

If anyone grew up with Jane Fonda as a Hollywood and newspaper headliner, then this docu is a must see.

Jane Fonda is to be admired for her social activism and her anti-war bravery ! According to her, her childhood was a painful mess. What can be said about that? I do not know.

But her marriage to Ted Turner was an affirmation of her privileged status in our society. Yes, she went out on a limb to support causes she held dear to her heart. Then suddenly she marries a billionaire!! I don't know what to make of that fact. Why? It's as if she turned her back on herself. As stated above - she is a complex person.

Like her or not - she has made a name for herself independent of her fathers fame through her acting career and her social/political activities. Her name is permanently etched into the history of both the 20th & 21st Centuries.
