With Oscar movies still to catch up with, and a massive slate of Sundance titles that will set the tempo for the New Year, you might feel there’s just too many movies on the horizon to keep track of. So how about a little visit to the past instead? “On Golden Pond” is headed to Blu-ray for the first time, and we’ve got copies to give away to some lucky readers.
Starring Hollywood legends Katharine Hepburn, Henry Fonda, and Jane Fonda (this would be the only movie this father and daughter would ever appear in together), the story follows Norman Thayer, a prickly retired professor who visits his summer home with his loving wife, Ethel. Soon after they are joined by their daughter, Chelsea, her fiancé Bill, and his son, Billy. The cantankerous Norman develops an unlikely bond with young Billy, providing the framework for an emotional summer in which the Thayers’ strained familial relationships are finally allowed to heal and take wing.
