In this new series of articles, our writers are watching classic films for the first time. This time we have Sophie catching up on the 1989 romantic comedy When Harry Met Sally.
Driving to New York together after graduation, Sally (Meg Ryan) and Harry (Billy Crystal) discuss if friendship between men and women (heterosexual ones, though that’s never caveated) is possible ‘without sex getting in the way’. After parting ways without sleeping together, they end up reconnecting at several points throughout their adult life. True friendship blossoms – and, if they could only admit it to themselves, so does true love.
