The Way We Were is a 1973 romance starring Barbara Streisand and Robert Redford as an unlikely couple navigating the tumultuous politics of mid-20th century America. When they first meet in the 1930s, Katie Morosky (Barbara Streisand) and Hubbell Gardiner (Robert Redford) are college students who feel an instant attraction to each other despite their wildly different backgrounds: Katie is Jewish and politically active, while Hubbell is an apathetic WASP. The two lose touch, but when they meet again more than a decade later, they spontaneously decide to marry. Katie and Hubbell's views clash often and their early married life is rocky, but Hubbell's new job as a Hollywood screenwriter provides them with a comfortable lifestyle. Soon, McCarthy's Hollywood blacklist begins to threaten Hubbell's career, and Katie makes matters worse by rekindling her political activism. The couple's home life deteriorates just as rapidly, and even Katie's announcement that she is expecting a baby may not be enough to save their relationship.moreless
