On Golden Pond This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

     A classic tale of an unusual friendship between an older man and a young boy, “On Golden Pond” is the ideal family movie. Starring Henry Fonda, Katharine Hepburn, Jane Fonda, and Doug McKeon, it follows the story of Norman (Henry Fonda) and Ethel (Hepburn) Thayer at their summer home.

When it comes time for Norman's eightieth birthday, the couple receives a surprise visit from their daughter, Chelsea (Jane Fonda). But that's not all - Chelsea brings along her fiancé Bill and his son Billy (McKeon). When Norman finds out that Chelsea and Bill are leaving for Europe and they are planning to leave Billy with them, he is anything but ecstatic.

With a seven-character cast, this smashing classic gets the acting just right. This heartwarming story is a tearjerker for even the strongest of men. A spectacular family film!

I did not like that movie. We watched it in class and I was so bored. I like older films, but that one did not satisfy. Great article tho.
