The Way We Were (1973) with Barbara Streisand & Robert Redford; at Derek's Place

As some of you may know, composer Marvin Hamlisch passed away recently. He won 2 Academy Awards for this film - best song and best score. I've never seen this film and think it's time I did. A friend recently made fun of me for calling myself a Streisand fan even though I haven't seen this film. In my defense, I paid $200 for a ticket and drove to Atlanta to see her perform this song and many others in 2006. I hope you can join us!

From Amazon "Robert Redford and Barbra Streisand star as sociopolitical opposites--he's a WASP novelist, she's an activist--who nevertheless strike up a romance in the 1930s, and have a rocky relationship through the next two decades that reflects much of America's history . . . director Sydney Pollack (Out of Africa) has crafted a strong and moving drama about two interesting characters. Redford (always good with Pollack) is at the height of his powers, and Streisand is persuasive."

    I loved this movie. Two people totally different from each other fall in love; but in the end their core differences break them apart. Sometimes love just isn't enough.

    I hadn't seen THE WAY WE WERE in a long time, so I really enjoyed revisiting this remarkable movie with my Meet-Up friends. There are some excellent writing, acting, and music in the film. The title song was the Oscar-winning Best Song of 1973.

    A very 1970s perspective on the issues of the late 1930s to 1950s, and a star-crossed-lovers' perspective on two very different levels of emotional investment. Love doesn't judge; and this movie didn't either, which is why it's such a classic.

    Lora - I saw your comment about showing A Star Is Born sometime. I've never seen the Streisand version and would love to screen it sometime. I have the dvd. I also need to watch Funny Girl, Yentl and Up the Sandbox.
