WHAT: Can a man and a woman just be friends? The question existed long before When Harry Met Sally…, but director Rob Reiner and screenwriter Nora Ephron turned the debate into one of the most sparkling and popular romantic comedies in movie history. For its 30th anniversary, When Harry Met Sally… returns to movie theaters nationwide for two days only – December 1 and 3 – as part of the TCM Big Screen Classics Series, with the winning chemistry and irrepressible charm of its two lead performers, Meg Ryan and Billy Crystal.Harry and Sally meet on a long drive from New York to Chicago – during which Harry claims that women and men can never be “just friends.” Over the years, Harry and Sally keep running into each other, claiming to have nothing more than a platonic friendship – until a climactic New Year’s Eve Party that threatens (or promises) to upend their assumptions about each other and about love. Carrie Fisher and Bruno Kirby co-star in the film, which the BBC, Paste Magazine and Vogue all have called one of the best romantic-comedies of all time. TCM Primetime host Ben Mankiewicz provides commentary and insight prior to each screening of this beguiling comedy.
