About this course:
Some love stories are heartbreaking; others are hilarious. The shenanigans of being in love – anxiety, desperation, ambivalence, and sentimentality – enable us to see this powerful human emotion with a lighter heart. Featured in this class are Made for Each Other, starring real life lovers Joseph Bologna and Renee Taylor, Arthur (the delightful original) with Dudley Moore and Liza Minelli; The Goodbye Girl, with Richard Dreyfus and Marsha Mason at their best; The Princess Bride with Mandy Patinkin, Cary Elwes, Peter Falk, and too many others to mention; Tootsie, starring Dustin Hoffman, Jessica Lange, Bill Murray, and a star turn by director Sydney Pollack; and finally Nora Ephron’s classic When Harry Met Sally, showcasing Billy Crystal, Meg Ryan, and the much missed Carrie Fisher.
