Rome – Jane Fonda and Robert Redford will be celebrated with Golden Lion lifetime achievement awards by the Venice Film Festival, where “Our Souls at Night,” the Netflix original film in which they both star, will have its world premiere in an out-of-competition slot.
Venice artistic director Alberto Barbera praised Fonda as “an extraordinarily successful and talented actress” and credited Redford with spearheading “that brilliant experiment in film called Sundance.” The pair will pick up their awards in Venice’s Palazzo del Cinema on Sept. 1, before a gala screening of “Our Souls at Night.”
Produced by Redford’s Wildwood Enterprises, “Our Souls” marks the first time that the two Hollywood icons have re-teamed on screen since their lead roles in “The Electric Horseman” (1979) (pictured). They previously starred together in “Barefoot in the Park” (1967).
