When Harry Met Sally

When Harry Met Sally

Director Rob Reiner and writer Nora Ephron's 1989 romantic comedy asks: 'Can men and women ever just be friends?' Harry and Sally meet when they graduate from the University of Chicago and carpool to New York to start their respective new careers. Over the next 12 years, their paths continue to cross at critical times in their lives, throwing the pair into a dysfunctional friendship that provides plenty of opportunity for analysis of the inner mechanisms of male/female relationships.

In scenes dominated by Ephron's trademark epigrams (with significant contributions to the dialogue by Reiner and Crystal), Harry and Sally share all of life's romantic melodramas with one another, from loneliness to divorce to extra-marital affairs, until their own friendship eventually matures into something else.
