The Way We Were
+ intro by season programmer Christina Newland
A nostalgic weepie starring a swoon-worthy Robert Redford.
Dir Sydney Pollack
With Robert Redford, Barbra Streisand, James Woods, Bradford Dillman
Sydney Pollack’s romantic melodrama stars Barbra Streisand as a bookish lefty and Robert Redford as a golden-haired jock – their challenging love affair set against the Red Scare in Hollywood. The Way We Were is a perfectly-cast, heartbreaking film about female yearning, and the attendant difficulties associated with it, using the cumulative powers of movie-star chemistry to woo the audience.
