'Jane Fonda in Five Acts'

Hollywood royalty, ingénue, activist, Oscar-winner, social pariah, movie star, trophy wife, aerobics guru, feminist éminence grise – there have been a lot of Jane Fondas over the years, and documentarian Susan Lacy (the recent HBO portrait Spielberg) lets each of these iterations have their say via a treasure trove of archival clips. Friends, costars and ex-spouses offer their two cents, but it's really Lady Jane herself who does the bulk of the talking, guiding viewers through a tour of traumas, detours, identity crises and high points. It's as much a longform therapy session as a biodoc – and all the better for it.
