Still Working 9 to 5
USA, Feature Documentary, 2022, 91 min
Remember the hilarious revenge-fantasies that Dolly Parton, Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin had about their creepy-sexist boss, Dabney Coleman? In 1980, the film 9 to 5 went from being controversial, to getting mixed reviews, to becoming a big box-office hit. The laughs hid a serious message about women in the office, and the film went on to be a culture-changing phenomenon. Still Working 9 to 5 reunites all of the stars from the original film, and they are spilling over with colorful and comedic observations. This film is interwoven with gender-rights milestones of the last 40 years and chats with writers, feminists and everyday people with their own workplace experiences. 9 to 5 is as relevant today as the year it lit up the box office four decades ago.
Directed by Camille Hardman, Gary Lane
