#4 Two for the Road
That little argument at the beginning of this film classic sets the tone for the whole movie. We watch as Audrey Hepburn and Albert Finney have a serious discussion, contemplating getting a divorce. The movie jumps around in time, showing us glimpses into the life and love of this charming couple, accenting the points of contention in their most recent argument. The story focuses on their various travels through France, including how they met. At first, the time jumping can be a bit disorienting, but once you get the hang of what car they’re travelling in, it’s quite easy to follow. It quickly becomes clear that the thoughts between the hateful insults they hurl at each other mean more to this couple than the words actually spoken. This movie just goes to show that no matter what mistakes we make in life, true love really can exist.
Of special note to children of the ’80’s is the guest starring role of none other than the voice of KITT as a schedule obsessed father of a precocious little brat.
