    They Shoot Horses, Don't They?

    Jane Fonda is unreal here; she’s at her prickly, feral best in wounded-wildcat mode. Bruce Dern and Bonnie Bedelia’s pregnant couple met her spasmodic ferocity with a deeper, more tempered desperation—if anyone “won,” those two might have. And at our screening last night, the present-day Dernsy was in fine form, raspy and puckish, for one of his pleasingly wide-ranging Q&As after.
