“A trenchant critique of the film industry…”

“As these women express their anger and frustration, their regrets and their hopes, they are, finally, appearing in a movie in which they reveal the depth and the originality of their own character.”
The New Yorker

24 actresses, each in her own words. Delphine Seyrig (LAST YEAR AT MARIENBAD, STOLEN KISSES) interviews Jane Fonda, Maria Schneider, Shirley MacLaine, Ellen Burstyn, Jill Clayburgh and more about their fears, hopes, regrets and experiences in the film industry.
