Jane Fonda and Robert Redford first teamed up on the big screen 50 years ago in Neil Simon’s Barefoot in the Park, and now Netflix has brought them back together for the tender and soulful drama Our Souls at Night. The movie marks their fourth together and it recently earned favorable reviews at its world premiere in Venice.
Adapted from the novel of same name by Kent Haruf, Our Souls at Night begins with Fonda’s Addie Moore knocking on the door of Redford’s Louis Waters. Both of them have lost their significant other and Addie proposes the two begin spending their nights together in bed. Her offer doesn’t involve sex, just the hope for connection late in life. Louis agrees despite some reservations and the two spark a soulful connection as they learn about each other’s histories.
