Here’s What the New Still Working 9 to 5 Movie is All About

Firstly, the original 9 to 5 documentary starred Dolly Parton, Lily Tomlin, and Jane Fonda. The film is based on the time period when women were struggling to find work.

In the trailer, Fonda revealed that everyone was extremely nervous about the movie since it include more female leads.

Then, Tomlin chimed in with almost dropping out of the cast because the humor became too much for her.

Dolly Parton originally wrote the song to encourage women to continue fighting for their freedom. It’s important for women to realize that they’re being heard and seen in the world.

“The core message of 9 to 5 is that women no longer put up with sh** and they demand respect,” Allison Janney stated.

Additionally, Still Working 9 to 5 is co-directed by Camille Hardman and Gary Lane. Tune in to SXSW next month to watch this unbelievable film.
