Julia (1977)
Directed by Fred Zinnemann
Starring Jane Fonda and Vanessa Redgrave
English, 117 minutes.

Lillian Hellman (Jane Fonda) is an aspiring playwright who lives with the much older Dashiell Hammett (Jason Robards), who has retired from a remarkably successful career as a writer of pulp detective stories (e.g. “The Maltese Falcon”, “The Thin Man”). Hellman has a huge New York success with her first play, “The Children’s Hour.” Her second play flops. At this point, she is recruited by her dear childhood friend, Julia (Vanessa Redgrave), to smuggle a large sum of cash to Berlin where it can be used by the resistance movement against the Nazis. The mysterious Julia is a medical student in Vienna who has for several years risked her life covertly opposing the Nazis. But will Lillian risk her own life for Julia? filmsgraded.com
