Coming off of rave reviews at the 2015 Cannes Film Festival, Youth is a new Italian dramedy and the second English-language film from director Paolo Sorrentino.

The film, which features a star-studded cast, tells the story of two best friends -- a retired conductor (Michael Caine) and a filmmaker (Harvey Keitel) -- who reflect on their lives during a vacation to the Swiss Alps. The movie also stars Rachel Weisz, Paul Dano, and Jane Fonda, whom her co-stars say gives a tour de force performance despite her small amount of screen time.

2015 is turning out to be a great year for Fonda. The Emmy-nominated Netflix series, Grace & Frankie, earned her and co-star Lily Tomlin critical praise. The actress recently wrapped filming on season two and tells ET “it’s a fabulous season.”

“My love interest is Sam Elliott. That's pretty cool, and my age, huh,” she jokes, adding: “I’m very proud of it.”
