Movie Info

Forgotten 20th Century Fox starlet Geneviève Waïte and forgotten "trendy" director Michael Sarne teamed for the eminently forgettable Joanna. Waïte stars as the title character, a swinging London art student who uses up men like other people use Kleenex. Her carefree lifestyle comes to an end when she is impregnated by Gordon (Calvin Lockhart) -- one of the first black-white relationships in a major motion picture. Joanna frequently becomes a musical, notably in the final sequence, in which the heroine joins in a chorus with the entire cast and production crew Donald Sutherland co-stars as one of Joanna's wealthy paramours. Director Michael Sarne went from Joanna to Myra Breckinridge, then disappeared from view. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

Critic Reviews for Joanna

All Critics (3) | Top Critics (1)

It it clear that, rather like a late meal by somebody confident who doesn't really cook, this has been a peculiar and highly mixed event, with moments of technical brilliance.

In what it tries to do, Joanna succeeds well. I just wish it had tried to do a little more.

January 6, 2021 | Full Review…

Just because [director] Michael Same is young, hip, and sincere, doesn't mean Joanna isn't an exploitation film.
