Production Photos



  • Jane Fonda’s character in the movie attended the Woodstock Festival in 1969 while pregnant. Her water broke during Jimi Hendrix’s rendition of “The Star-Spangled Banner”. Catherine Keener, who plays the daughter, was actually born in 1959 – ten years before her character.
  • Even though it was released after two other films, in which she appeared, this is Elizabeth Olsen’s first feature film acting job.
  • In this movie, Jane Fonda plays an eccentric hippie named Grace, who has an uptight daughter, with whom she doesn’t get along. In Grace and Frankie (2015), Jane Fonda plays an uptight woman named Grace who doesn’t exactly always get along with Lily Tomlin’s character, Frankie, who is an eccentric hippie.
  • The butcher, for whom Cole works, is named Mr. Fleischer. “Fleischer” is the German word for “butcher”.
  • Maddie Corman, who plays Carole, is first seen at a peace rally in the middle of Woodstock. In PCU (1994), she plays one of the Womynists, who protests everything as well.
