Katherine (1975) Rated NR

KatherineA look at the 1960s and 1970s through the eyes of a debutante who fights for the ideals she believes in, which slowly sends her spiraling into the world of terrorism.  Based on the life of Diana Oughton. Starring Art Carney, Sissy Spacek, Henry Winkler

This film plays as a documentary. We watch Katherine’s life unfold in flashbacks, interspersed with interviews with family and friends and with Katherine, who explains her decisions. A fictional story based in fact, it realistically portrays how someone can love their country and have good intentions, but not see the bigger picture clearly enough to realize that their actions are doing more damage than good. Sissy Spacek gave Katherine both the vulnerability and strength to show how far such a person can go.  Henry Winkler, as Katherine’s boyfriend, also makes this film worthy of watching in a role that digs much deeper than “The Fonz.” This is worth a watch.
