He's working on a crossword puzzle at night when she calls and establishes that, in all the years of them being neighbors and alone, they've never gotten to know each other. She wants to come over and ask him to consider sleeping with her. She's lonely. Having someone next to her might help her sleep. "Nights are the hardest," she says. Addie is forthright and adventurous, like the character Jane Fonda played in BAREFOOT IN THE PARK. Louis is reserved and needs to be coaxed into stepping outside his usual groove, just like the character Robert Redford played in BAREFOOT IN THE PARK.
In bed, Addie and Louis become friends. They discuss the joys, heartbreaks and mistakes of their marriages. They help each other navigate through some still choppy waters in relationships with a grown child. They get intimate. Here's a look at OUR SOULS AT NIGHT.
I read for OUR SOULS AT NIGHT. Those reviews were right. I so enjoyed this feature -- and I loved seeing that Jane Fonda and Robert Redford are still in top form. I highly recommend OUR SOULS AT NIGHT. Jane Fonda was an Emmy nominee this year for her lead performance on Netflix's GRACE AND FRANKIE sitcom. She was a knockout on the red carpet.
By the way, her 1967 comedy with Redford, BAREFOOT IN THE PARK, is also on Netflix now.
