Nora Ephron’s witty script under the deft direction of Rob Reiner and the talents of Meg Ryan and Billy Crystal combine to make WHEN HARRY MET SALLY one of the classic romantic comedies of all time. Ephron garnered an Academy Award nomination for Best Screenplay for the film and won the British Academy of Film and Television’s award for the same.
The film follows Harry (Billy Crystal) and Sally (Meg Ryan) who first meet in college and reconnect after a ten year hiatus. Arguing over whether a man can be a good friend with a woman without having sex, their own friendship becomes an unknowing testing ground. The romantic romp, with it’s snappy dialogue and iconic “deli scene”, is one of the smartest and sweetest comedies around, a perfect way to wrap up the year.
