First Look: Jane Fonda & Robert Redford in Our Souls At Night
Robert Redford and Jane Fonda first starred in a film together 50 years ago and they last starred together 37 years ago. They are now reunited for their fourth time in Netflix’s Our Souls At Night.
Based on the novel written by Kent Haruf and adapted for the screen by Scott Neustadter and Michael H. Weber (The Fault in Our Stars), Our Souls at Night is set in Colorado and begins when Addie Moore (Jane Fonda) pays an unexpected visit to a neighbor, Louis Waters (Robert Redford). Her husband died years ago, as did his wife, and in such a small town they’d been neighbors for decades, but had little contact. Their children live far away and they are all alone in their big houses. She seeks to establish a connection, and make the most of the rest of the time they have.
The film is directed by Ritesh Batra (The Lunchbox) and also stars Bruce Dern (Nebraska), Judy Greer (Jurassic World), Matthias Schoenaerts (The Danish Girl), and Iain Armitage (Big Little Lies) will play Jamie, Addie’s grandson.
Fonda and Redford first starred in The Chase and followed that up a year later to play newlyweds in the 1967 romantic comedy Barefoot in the Park. The pair also starred opposite each other in 1979’s The Electric Horseman.
The Netflix original film will be with us in 2017.
