The way we were (1973)

– It wasn’t funny.
– That’s not the only reason to laugh.

Laid-back apolitical sports jock meets angry left-wing peace activist. This begins more as parody and masquerade than drama, with Streisand and Redford ridiculously old as college students in strange clothes.

– People are their principles.

It picks up emotional momentum, though – chronicling a complex and strained relationship. But it careens much too fast through happy and troubled times, losing credibility in the process.

– It was never uncomplicated.

Nice enough, but not in my book of love and society.

– You never give up, do you?
