Movie Summary

Director:
Robert Mulligan
Released:
1978
Rating:
PG
Same Time Next Year is a 1978 romantic comedy that follows an extramarital affair between a California housewife and a New Jersey accountant over 26 years. At a seaside diner in 1951, George Peters (Alan Alda) meets Doris (Ellen Burstyn) who is also staying at the nearby hotel. The film then follows these two unlikely lovers as they continue to meet once a year at the same seaside spot, as they share their triumphs, sorrows and confusions of a lifetime. Based on a popular Broadway play, the story also explores the cultural shifts of the country as the Eisenhower 1950s transform into the 1960s counter cultural revolutions like civil rights and feminism to the "me" generation of the 1970s. The two characters also transform from happily married young people to parenthood, marriage conflicts and growing old. Directed by Robert Mulligan ("To Kill a Mockingbird"), the film blends comedy and drama into a satisfying overview of life's many unexpected moments.
