“Making women visible and powerful in the media,” the mission of the nonprofit New york and D.C. based Women’s Media Center, was on full display Monday night June 4. The evening’s centerpiece was the premiere of “Peace, Love, and Misunderstanding,” starring the incomparable Jane Fonda  as a marijuana-growing and selling, tie-dye-wearing, sexuality-embracing, moon-howling grandmother who never left the 1960’s.

Set in bucolic Woodstock  NY, home of the last remaining 60’s hippies, the independent film is a sweet and savvy story of generational conflicts and reconciliation. I’ll be writing more about its characters and especially Fonda’s flowing-haired grandmother power.

Meanwhile, watch for the movie in your neighborhood or put it on your Netflix  queue. Highly recommended.
