Adapted by Alvin Sargent from a chapter in Lillian Hellman’s memoir, Pentimento, and directed by the magisterial Fred Zinnemann, Julia (1977) stars Jane Fonda as the famously flinty Hellmann and Vanessa Redgrave as her childhood friend, a young woman from a wealthy upper-crust American family who becomes a ferocious anti-Fascist in Europe during the prelude to World War II. Also starring Jason Robards as Hellman’s tough lover, the writer Dashiell Hammett, and Maximilian Schell as a deceptively mild-mannered resistance member. Shot by Douglas Slocombe, and highlighted by music from the sublime Georges Delerue.

Fred Zinnemann’s superbly sensitive film…is handsome and tasteful. The period environment, brilliantly recreated…complements the topflight performances and direction. Fonda and Redgrave…are dynamite together on the screen.”
“Miss Fonda and Miss Redgrave are marvelous and true…In their comparatively few scenes together, the movie builds emotional momentum…moves back and forth in time and place as we do in good conversation.”
– Vincent Canby, The New York Times
