When Harry Met Sally...

It's a new year, movie lovers, and in this episode, we take on an incredible film with crisp, spot-on, endlessly quotable dialogue, a cast that is absolutely perfect, and not one but two fantastic New Year's Eve scenes. That's right, we're talking about Rob Reiner's 1989 romantic comedy classic When Harry Met Sally....

We talk about how the film sprang from the real lives of Rob Reiner, his producing partner Andrew Scheinman and the Oscar-nominated writer Nora Ephron. We discuss the nature of the filmmaking process for this film and how smart it was to let the storytelling stand out front even though they could have easily brought out an arsenal of cinematic tools to use. Restraint can be a good thing! We laugh about the neverending lines from the film that are still quoted to this day. And we report on the truth of those cute old couples who pop up throughout the film to recount their own tales of falling in love. It's a magical, heartwarming tale of love, friendship, and the constant struggle between men and women to try to understand each other. Tune in and join us to start 2012 off right!
