Husbands and Wives
- 1 hr 48 min
Sometimes it's not easy being Husbands and Wives, as Woody Allen's 1992 film of that name dramatically shows. The film follows two married couples, Sally and Jack and Judy and Gabe, who have been friends for years. When Sally and Jack announce their separation, it throws Sally and Jack into turmoil. Much of the story centers around the new emotional ties that Sally and Jack begin to form as they start to date other people. Gabe can't sympathize when Jack begins to see a new woman, but Judy tries to set Sally up with a colleague from work, a man she herself is attracted to. While she becomes entangled in their on-again, off-again romance, Gabe finds himself drawn to a younger woman, one of his students. Although he's attracted to her, he also feels unsure about whether or not he should pursue her. The intensity of these tangled emotions and some interesting story turns drive the film to its somewhat surprising conclusion.
