“We wanted make movies that could appeal to an average audience — average Americans — and take them on a trip that they normally wouldn’t go on in terms of their consciousness. So you have to have characters that they can begin to identify with at the beginning... There was a message being delivered, but it was encased in a story that even if you didn’t buy the message, would hold you.
If you feel strongly about something, there’s nothing that can make you feel better than being able to embed your passionate feelings into a delivery system that is totally accessible by people who don’t agree with you.”
—Jane Fonda, in the bonus features of The China Syndrome
