Two disparate people have a wonderful romance, but their political views and convictions drive them apart.
Arthur Laurents summed up his experience on the film, "To make a mantra of 'It's only a movie' was as useless and foolish as feeling pain. No matter what I felt or thought, no matter what I tried to accomplish or how, Sydney Pollack would ultimately have his way. That was what I had to face and accept. They didn't cry 'Author! Author!' in the movies, they never had. Now they cried 'Auteur! Auteur!' - even if the auteur f*cked up the picture."
Katie Morosky Gardner:
Wouldn't it be lovely if we were old? We'd have survived all this. Everything thing would be easy and uncomplicated; the way it was when we were young.
Hubbell Gardner: Katie, it was never uncomplicated.
When Katie and Hubbell are meeting the group shortly after President Roosevelt dies, she makes her "meeting up every 5 years" comment, after that she says to Hubbell "What are we doing here?" When she says that, her lip movements don't match what she's saying.
