Book Club centers on the lifelong friendship of four women (Diane Keaton, Jane Fonda, Candice Bergen, Mary Steenburgen) whose lives take a turn after reading 50 Shades of Grey. Jane Fonda is Vivian, the most confident of the friends who has no-strings attached relations with men.
“It’s about friendship and sex,” said Fonda. “(It’s about a) woman being able to decide from a fully authentic place when she is ready to give up hope for a relationship, hope for sensuality, hope for a love affair. It’s not meant to make people who are older and not having sex feel bad about it. Nobody has to keep on being sexual later in life. But it should be up to us to make the decision.”
