Digital 4K
Certificate PG

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.

The screening on Tue 21 Apr will be introduced by season programmer Christina Newland.
