STILL WORKING 9 TO 5

California Premiere


LAUGH | MIND THE GAP | DOCS

US 2021, 95 min, Directors: Camille Hardman, Gary Lane

The iconic 1980 screwball feminist revenge comedy that put the plight of women office workers on blast steps back into the spotlight in this fun and fascinating documentary. While directors Camille Hardman and Gary Lane investigate why 9 to 5 was made, how its production unfolded, and the film’s impact, they also depict the long struggle for the ratification of the Equal Rights Amendment. Stars Jane Fonda, Lily Tomlin, and Dolly Parton demonstrate their delightful and potent onscreen chemistry in insightful vintage footage and present-day interviews. Co-star Dabney Coleman and others involved in the film and later TV and stage adaptations also appear in this eye-opening film that reveals just how far we have – and have not – come in 40 years. And while the subject matter is serious, the documentary shares the light-hearted tone that made 9 to 5 such a smash. —Celia C. Peters
