Movie of the Week: When Harry Met Sally… (1989)

Rob Reiner directs Meg Ryan, Billy Crystal and Carrie Fisher in this romantic comedy that asks ‘Can men and women be friends or does sex always get in the way?’

Magical cinema. Crystal and Ryan bounce wonderfully off and into each other as two odd jigsaw puzzle pieces that fit perfectly together. Nora Ephron’s script is the Holy Grail of wit, maturity and insight. Reiner and cinematographer Barry Sonnenfeld make Manhattan look like the most romantic place on Earth… and do you know what? Thanks to this unimpeachable classic, eternal rewatchable, it is!
