The life journey of a common woman
26 September 2018 | by BasicLogicSee all my reviews

I'd like to compliment HBO did such a profound painting of Jane Fonda, a documentary was so subtly made, allowing us to take a long journey with her step by step, stage by stage, seeing her as seeing ourselves from childhood to the final chapter of our life, struggled like a lost soul trying to find the right or the better path of fulfillment of life.

Ms. Fonda is a genuine person, a larger-than-life soul, a part of our civilization through some of our bitter and cruel past of the darkest era and continued to nowadays ridiculous political environment. Her struggles for a better and more humane America seemed to be so worthless that only sparkled a tiny candle light in her life process. Her truthfulness as a human being is somewhat the nowadays Americans who should take a closer look to themselves and, who should ask themselves how come we've lost our decency to ourselves and to all the other people in the world; how come we Americans have become so obnoxious and arrogant, so naive and yet the same time so evil. Ms. Fonda has spent her whole life trying to find her real self unsuccessfully until her final chapter is what we should learn and be reminded. To be true to ourself and to others should be the most important principle of our life.

Highly recommended.
