“The roles and the temperaments of the stars are inseparable here. That’s what makes the movie so effective a throwback (with a political difference) to the romantic star vehicles of an earlier era…The male-female story of The Way We Were gives it a vital connection to people’s lives…It’s hit entertainment.”
—Pauline Kael, The New Yorker
“[Streisand]’s fantastic. She’s the brightest, quickest actress in movies today, inhabiting her characters with a fierce energy and yet able to be touchingly vulnerable.”
—Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
Barbra Streisand and Robert Redford bring the full force of their distinctive—and very distinct—talents to The Way We Were (1973), an edgy, anguished, but often very funny love story set in the turbulent period between 1937 and the mid-1950s. The Depression, World War II, and particularly the post-War era of political witch-hunts, the HUAC hearings, and the Hollywood Blacklist comprise the backdrop for the unlikely romance between an intense, passionate outsider (Streisand) and a talented but spoiled golden boy (Redford): opposites who are very attracted, indeed. Directed by Sidney Pollack from a script by Arthur Laurents, and featuring a classic Oscar®-winning score by Marvin Hamlisch.
