Description

Radical at the time, and sadly still all too relevant today, this cult screwball comedy takes aim at sexism in outrageous and inspiring fashion. Starring a holy trinity of badass ladies (Dolly Parton, TCFF 2018 Lifetime Achievement Honoree Jane Fonda, and Lily Tomlin) and conceived by Fonda herself, the genius of 9 to 5 is how it so shrewdly manages to use hilarity to confront the painful reality of sexual harassment and discrimination in the workplace. Sassy and savage, exuberant and euphoric, the satisfying wish fulfillment of getting revenge on their "sexist, egotistical, lying, hypocritical bigot" of a sleazy boss (Dabney Coleman) has become a feminist rallying cry and its infectious theme song remains the anthem of working girls everywhere. So pour yourself a cup of ambition and come smash the patriarchy with us at this special Jane Fonda Tribute screening because TIME’S UP!
