Our Souls At Night is pure Movies In Focus fodder. I’m all over this new trailer – right down to the Van Morrison soundtrack. Good to see that Robert Redford is still rocking his trademark blue short.
Fifty years since playing newlyweds in Barefoot in the Park, Academy Award winners Redford and Jane Fonda come together onscreen for the fourth time in Netflix’s Our Souls at Night, this time playing a couple who find love unexpectedly later in life.
Based on the best-selling novel written by Kent Haruf and adapted for the screen by Scott Neustadter and Michael H. Weber (The Fault in Our Stars), Our Souls at Night is set in Colorado and begins when Addie Moore (Fonda) pays an unexpected visit to a neighbor, Louis Waters (Redford). Her husband died years ago, as did his wife, and in a small town they’d been neighbors for decades, but had little contact. Their children live far away and they are all alone in their big houses. She seeks to establish a connection, and make the most of the rest of the time they have.
Bruce Dern, Matthias Schoenaerts, Judy Greer and Iain Armitage co-star in the Our Souls At Night which drops on Netflix on 29 September 2017.
