Fictional portrayal of Jane Fonda supposedly playing Lillian Hellmann as a spy during WW2 , yawn it never happened. Move on.

Good performance by Jane Fonda. The beginning of the movie was slow but it got interesting when Lilian was tapped to smuggle the money to Julia and I was rooting for her not to get caught. I didn't feel that they developed the friendship between Julia and Lilian as well as they could have, not enough for me to feel the depth of their friendship. I was hoping Lilian found Lily in the end, but she didn't and the movie seemed to end abruptly.

A good performance by Jane Fonda but the movie was boring and slow moving, despite Vanessa Redgrave and the storyline.

This is one of my all-time favorite movies. It is based on the true story of Lillian Hellman and her friend, Julia. I happen to think it is probably the best acting Jane Fonda ever did. The story is suspenseful and totally engrossing.

This 1977 film was nominated for 11 Academy Awards but sadly is mostly forgotten today. I found it to be a gripping drama filled with suspense and emotion. Jane Fonda and Vanessa Redgrave give remarkable performances as the two leads. It is based on Lilian Helman's autobiographical book Pentimento. As an interesting aside, the story has been claimed to have been stolen by Helman from another woman. Regardless of the origin of the material, the film is fantastic and worth viewing.
