Falling in Love

Falling in Love is an 80's romantic drama starring Meryl Streep (fave) and Robery DeNiro. It's not up there with When Harry Met Sally for me (fave film of all time... but that's another post) but it's one that I don't mind watching over and over. It takes place at Christmas time in New York, which is just divine in itself, and there is something about the early 80's that I've always loved. The clothes, the customs, the old fashioned ways mixed with the new. Watching this movie now almost feels like a period piece... the ads for Pan Am, the exaggerated teased bangs on Ms. Streep, the pay phones, etc.

The movie deals with a deep moral question. What do two people who are "happy" in their respective committed relationships do when a chance meeting brings them together and circumstances follow in which they fall in love? It's a pretty unrealistic plot set up, but worth considering nonetheless. Recommend, recommend, recommend! Now back to the movie!
