After watching this all I can think is, wow, Jane Fonda is extraordinary. I had no idea that Jane Fonda had experienced so many trials, tribulations, and controversy. From living in France, being a housewife, her involvement in the Black Panther movement, her controversy with the Vietnam War, and all of her political activism all while being under the microscope of Hollywood, yet she remains grounded, humble, poised, and confident. I think that in this day in age there is so much pressure from society that depicts how a person should look, how to live the 'perfect' life, and to live up to society's expectations. After watching this and seeing that Jane wasn't sure who she was and questioned whether she was normal when it came to her emotions, her body, her family, and her beliefs, it makes me feel that it's okay that everything in life isn't planned or figured out. Life doesn't have to be perfect & full of rainbows, and a person doesn't have to be 100% certain of who they are and it's okay to evolve, even if society doesn't agree. Jane really is an inspiration, I'm glad this documentary was done and I'm grateful that she gave me the opportunity to see a glimpse into her life. I'm in awe.
