EXCLUSIVE: Images From Highly Anticipated Film 'Youth' Starring Jane Fonda & Michael Caine
By Stacy Lambe
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.
“I wanted to work with Paolo Sorrentino,” Fonda tells ET
about why she chose to do this project despite such a small role. “He's a real
artist and I loved the movies of his that I had seen before. I just would've
done anything to work with him.”
Ahead of the release on Friday, Dec. 4, ETonline has your
exclusive look at new images from the movie and a peek behind the scenes. Check

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.”
