About the film:

Call girl and aspiring actor Bree Daniels (Jane Fonda in an Academy Award winning performance) becomes the focal point of a missing-person investigation when detective John Klute (Donald Sutherland) turns up at her door.

Suffused with paranoia by the conspiracy-thriller specialist Alan J. Pakula, and lensed by master cinematographer Gordon Willis, Klute (1971) 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.

“Nearly 50 years since it premiered, Klute still offers relevant feminist considerations about what it means to want to be an object of desire while also lashing out against the people and the patriarchal system that only values you as such.”

—Beatrice Loayza, AV Club
