The Way We Were (1973); dir. Sydney Pollack

If I push too hard it’s because I want things to be better – I want US to be better, I want YOU to be better! Sure I make waves, I mean, you have to. And I’ll KEEP making them till you’re everything you should be and WILL be. You’ll never find anyone as good for you as I am, to believe in you as much as I do or to LOVE you as much!


Shakespeare in Love (1998); dir. John Madden

My story starts at sea, a perilous voyage to an unknown land. A shipwreck. The wild waters roar and heave. The brave vessel is dashed all to pieces. And all the helpless souls within her drowned. All save one. A lady. Whose soul is greater than the ocean, and her spirit stronger than the sea’s embrace. Not for her a watery end, but a new life beginning on a stranger shore. It will be a love story. For she will be my heroine for all time. And her name will be Viola.
