Jane Fonda on her role in ‘Peace, Love and Misunderstanding’ | chicagotribune.com

“I KNOW when some people see this movie, they are going to say, ‘Oh, she is just playing herself.’ But it’s not true. I was never a hippie in the ’60s, I didn’t know anything about that aspect of the cultural landscape. I barely knew about Woodstock. It’s true!”

That’s Jane Fonda, talking about her character in the coming movie, “Peace, Love and Misunderstanding,” a title that could accurately describe Fonda’s various personas and reinventions over the past 50 years.

The movie, co-starring that great actress Catherine Keener, is about a long-estranged mother and daughter — the mother is still an organic, free-love, pot-smoking flower child. The daughter is an uptight, about-to-be-divorced lawyer. They come together one summer, and life changes. The themes are forgiveness, acceptance and moving on. Especially, forgiveness of parents.
