Jane Fonda and Robert Redford are without a doubt two of Hollywoods most recognizable names and stars. They both have been making movies since the 60’s and have won numerous awards and accolades from just about everyone. Redford starred in such films as A River Runs Through It and the TV series Maverick. Fonda has her own seriously impressive resume as well with works such as Walk on the Wild Side and China Syndrome. Now the pair are teaming up for the Netflix original film Our Souls at Night and we have yet to see any teasers but we do have the image above provided by Netflix. The synopsis of the film follows below.
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.
