another one of those oddball Netflix
In this case, it's Barbara Streisand and Robert Redford in The Way We Were.
I'm not 100% positive why I wanted to see this film, but I think I narrowed it down to two reference points;
Carrie: Your girl is lovely, Hubbell.Admittedly, I liked the quote a little better when I thought Hubbell was the guy's last name (why does it seem cool for a couple to call each other by their last name?) but it's his first.
Maynard Ferguson was a jazz trumpeteer who could play really, really high, and his cover of "Chameleon" is one of the best tracks ever. Two tracks later on that album it's "The Way We Were". Also, researching this writeup, I found out the guy died just a month or two ago, so that's kind of a bummer.
It's also a little odd to see an older film portraying an even earlier decade, but I think the movie does a good job of it.
I'll leave the summary for other webpages, and just say this: where are the films these days that can go without the simple, pat endings? That show romance can be kind of complex, and sometimes other passions in life interfere, and sometimes being from opposite sides of the tracks isn't the recipe for a perfect life together.
So that's why I like this movie, and why I'd recommend seeing it.
