‘On Golden Pond’ (1982) PG Rating
Henry Fonda, in his last film role, is Norman Thayer, a prickly English professor of 80, holidaying with his wife Ethel (Katherine Hepburn) at their summer house on Golden Pond, New England. Out of the blue, their daughter Chelsea (Jane Fonda) turns up with her new fiancée Billy Ray (Doug McKeon) and his 12 year old son. The generation gap is soon highlighted with Norman and Billy clashing frequently and fiercely. However, as summer progresses, Norman begins to forge a close relationship with the boy that he never achieved with Chelsea and begins to realise how much happiness he missed out on with his own daughter. The film is a masterpiece of storytelling, with beautiful, touching performances: Fonda and Hepburn were rewarded with Academy Awards for Best Actor and Best Actress for their roles.
