When Harry Met Sally… (1989)

In a league of its own—A hilarious, dated, YET quintessential INVESTIGATION of heteronormative male-female friendships.

Regan Humphrey

Over the course of 12 years, Harry Burns (Billy Crystal) and Sally Albright (Meg Ryan)—two strangers turned antagonists, later friends, and later lovers—reflect on sex, relationships, and commitment. In 1989, friendship is the next frontier for this unlikely pair. But the success of their dynamic is challenged by the introduction of all the things they theorize about—Can a friendship between a man and a woman truly exist, where sex, relationships and commitment come into play?
