White Wall Cinema Presents – KLUTE
June 20 @ 7:40 pm – 10:00 pm
A landmark in feminist cinema Klute is a thriller from All The President’s Men / Sophie’s Choice director Alan J. Pakula that features a groundbreaking and deeply intelligent central performance from Jane Fonda in what is easily the best role which earned her a Best Actress Oscar win. Alongside the ever great Donald Sutherland, Fonda plays high priced call girl Bree Daniels who assists Detective John Klute (Sutherland) in a missing persons case that clearly endangers her own life. Part of the great movement of American 70s paranoia thrillers, the movie is stolen by Fonda’s exceptional deep understanding of her character’s psyche as a call girl struggling to understand her life and motivations. A gripping performance that handily avoids cliche and fascinates throughout Fonda grabs the opportunity to upend lazy assumptions about female sex workers and create a fully formed multi layered character. A brilliantly atmospheric film worth seeing not only for it’s sensational take on the mood of Watergate era America but chiefly for its utterly heroic powerhouse performance by Fonda that will linger in your mind for many years to come
