Details

With her Oscar-winning® turn in Klute, Jane Fonda (9 to 5) arrived fully-fledged as a new kind of movie star. Bringing nervy audacity and counterculture style to the role of Bree Daniels a call girl and aspiring actor who becomes the focal point of a missing person investigation when detective John Klute (Donald Sutherland) turns up at her door Fonda made the film her own, putting an independent woman and escort on-screen with a frankness that had not yet been attempted in Hollywood.

Suffused with paranoia by the conspiracy-thriller specialist Alan J. Pakula (All the President’s Men), and lensed by master cinematographer Gordon Willis (The Godfather), Klute  is a character study thick with dread, capturing the mood of early-1970s New York and the predicament of a woman trying to find her own way on the fringes of society.
