Storyline

In Holt, a small Colorado town, 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 (Matthias Schoenaerts and Judy Greer) live far away and they are all alone in their big houses. Addie seeks to establish a connection, and make the most of the rest of the time they have. Written by Polly_Kat

Bob and Jane are Adorable!
30 September 2017 | by See all my reviews

Millions of Americans watched Our Souls at Night on September 29th, the Netflix release date of their original film that reunited Robert Redford and Jane Fonda for the first time since 1979's The Electric Horseman. I'm happy to say I was one of them, and I wasn't disappointed!

Robert Redford is a lonely widower, and his neighbor Jane Fonda is a lonely widow. After dinner one night, Jane knocks on his door and propositions him. "Would you be interested in coming to my house some nights and sleeping with me?" she asks. She explains her reasoning: they're both lonely, and she thinks it would be easier to get through the night if there was someone beside her to talk to. Her intentions are entirely honorable, and when Bob agrees, they strike up a friendship that just might lead to more.

This movie is so cute! They put a long gray wig on Jane to frump her up a bit, but she's still beautiful and vibrant, and Bob is as handsome and sweet as he was decades ago. When you watch the movie, it doesn't feel like you're watching a 79-year-old and an 81-year-old. They've both aged so well; it feels like a love story between two folks in their late-sixties.

The plot is pretty simple, but it doesn't have to be complicated. We're watching it for the eye candy of Bob and Jane! With her gray Gibson bun, Jane seemed to channel Katharine Hepburn in On Golden Pond, and I found myself hoping that Hollywood would remake the classic film with Jane in the lead. She could reunite with costar Bruce Dern from Coming Home, who's also in Our Souls at Night, and Laura Dern could play the daughter. Everyone would go see it! If the Derns were unavailable, the story could be tweaked to widower and his sister, rather than husband and wife, and Peter Fonda could join Jane in the lead role. Bridget Fonda could come out of retirement and round out the cast—there wouldn't be a dry eye in the house! But enough of my On Golden Pond fantasy. Go watch Our Souls at Night, exclusively on Netflix, and fall in love with Bob and Jane all over again. It's truly charming, and it makes for a very sweet and fun evening.
