The Way We Were

Jewish Katie (Barbara Streisand) and Waspy Hubbell (Robert Redford) are madly in love, but their marriage doesn't last - she is driven and political, he is successful, but lacks commitment and passion. This intensely anti-assimilationist and feminist film is unique in Hollywood for two reasons: it has a positive Jewish heroine, and, it links Jewish passion for social justice to a sense we have of ourselves as outsiders.
