WIN! The Criterion Edition of Klute on Blu-ray

With her Oscar-winning® turn in Klute, Jane Fonda (Coming Home) arrived full-fledged as a new kind of movie star. Bringing nervy audacity and counterculture style to the role of Bree Daniels – a call girl and aspiring actor who becomes the focal point of a missing person investigation when detective John Klute (Donald Sutherland) turns up at her door – Fonda made the film her own, putting an independent woman and escort on-screen with a frankness that had not yet been attempted in Hollywood. Suffused with paranoia by the conspiracy-thriller specialist Alan J. Pakula (All the President’s Men), and lensed by master cinematographer Gordon Willis (The Godfather), Klute is a character study thick with dread, capturing the mood of early-1970s New York and the predicament of a woman trying to find her own way on the fringes of society.
