Fonda and Redford reunite in Our Souls at Night teaser
Fifty years since playing newlyweds in Barefoot in the Park, Academy Award winners Robert Redford and Jane Fonda come together onscreen for the fourth time in Netflix’s Our Souls at Night, this time playing a couple who find love unexpectedly later in life. Check out the Our Souls at Night teaser below along with new photos in the gallery, and be sure to check out the Fonda and Redford reunion when it debuts on the streaming service September 29!
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.
Jane Fonda (9-to-5, Grace and Frankie) will star as Addie Moore, Robert Redford (Out of Africa, Captain America: The Winter Soldier) as Louis Waters, Bruce Dern (Nebraska) as Dorlan, Judy Greer (The Descendants) as Holly, Matthias Schoenaerts (The Danish Girl) as Gene, and Iain Armitage (Big Little Lies) will play Jamie, Addie’s grandson. The film is directed by Ritesh Batra (The Lunchbox) and produced by Finola Dwyer (Brooklyn), with Ben Ormand (Mascots) serving as executive producer.
The film reunites Fonda and Redford as an onscreen couple, famously captured in films like The Chase and Barefoot in the Park. The pair last worked together in 1979 on The Electric Horseman.
