The 1994 movie Love Affair tells the story of Mike Gambril (Warren Beatty) and Terry McKay (Annette Bening), two strangers who meet on a flight from Los Angeles to New York. Both are engaged to other people, but they feel an instant connection and spend the duration of the flight getting to know each other. They agree to meet again in three months' time at the top of the Empire State Building, if they both decide to end their current relationships and pursue a future together.

Mike is a successful ex-football player turned television presenter, and Terry is a singer who is engaged to Ken Allen (Pierce Brosnan), a wealthy businessman. The two leads embark on a whirlwind romance in New York, visiting art galleries, going to Broadway shows and exploring the city together. They talk about their past relationships, their hopes and dreams, and their fears of commitment.

As the three months come to a close, Terry is torn between her love for Ken and her growing feelings for Mike. She knows she has to make a difficult decision, and when the time comes to meet Mike at the Empire State Building, fate intervenes in a tragic way that will change both of their lives forever.

Love Affair is a remake of the 1939 film of the same name, which starred Charles Boyer and Irene Dunne. In this version, the chemistry between Beatty and Bening is palpable, reflecting the real-life romance that had started between them on the set of the film. The movie was also notable for featuring one of Katharine Hepburn's final performances, as Mike's aunt Ellie, who provides some of the film's most memorable moments.

The movie received lukewarm reviews on its release, with some critics noting that it lacked the charm and humor of the original film. However, it was praised for the chemistry between the two leads, and for its romantic storyline that would appeal to audiences of all ages.

Overall, Love Affair is a touching and romantic film that explores the themes of love, loss and the challenges that come with making difficult decisions. It may not be as well-known as other romantic classics, but it is a worthy addition to the genre and is sure to melt the hearts of viewers who watch it.

Love Affair is a 1994 drama with a runtime of 1 hour and 48 minutes. It has received moderate reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 6.0 and a MetaScore of 55.
