Plot Synopsis:

Nominated for nine Academy Awards, this "vivid" (Cue), "fascinating" (Leonard Maltin) film stars Oscar winner Jane Fonda as a woman driven to seize her last best chance during the very worst of times. A "brilliant" (L.A. Herald-Examiner) achievement by director Sydney Pollack, it is "a stunning period piece" (Variety).

In Depression-era America, desperation spawned a bizarre fad: the dance marathon. Couples competed to stay on their feet for thousands of hours, and audiences flocked to watch. But Gloria (Fonda) doesn't think of herself as a spectacle. She is a fierce, unforgiving contestant in a battle she's determined to win. At stake is much more than the $1.500 prize. The marathon is her only hope for dignity, accomplishment...and salvation.
