OVERVIEW Set amidst the bizarre and cruel world of Depression-era marathon dance competitions, this gritty, terrifying opus is a testament to cinema par excellence. With Jane Fonda in the lead as a woman completely damaged and distorted by life, the ugliness of human nature emerges in and around the exhausting musical interludes and gut busting relay races.
