There should be a new genre of films called Geezerpolation and if you looked it up Jane Fonda’s picture would be in the definition.
“Moving On” is a well-crafted film. I thought the premise was great. Jane Fonda plays a woman grieving over a friend’s death and she makes a promise to her friend’s widower (played by Malcom McDowell) that she’s finally going to get her revenge for what he did to her 45 years ago that ruined her life.
The performances from the entire cast are exceptional, with each actor bringing a depth and authenticity to their respective roles, which can’t be help when you have such seasoned actors in the film. Richard Roundtree is proving that Shaft never gets old, looking really good as a romantic lead. The chemistry between the characters is palpable. It’s like Fonda and Lilly Tomlin are trying to go down in History like Cheech and Chong or Martian & Lewis.
Overall, “Moving On” is a movie that is not to be missed. It is a moving and powerful exploration of the human experience, told with grace, honesty, and compassion.
