This timeless romantic comedy celebrates its 30th anniversary this year and yet it feels as fresh as ever. Harry and Sally debate the potentially ruinous effect sex might have on a relationship between a man and a woman as university graduates, and though, more than a decade later, they still don’t know the answer, they can no longer deny their mutual attraction. The brilliant Nora Ephron wrote the ultimate will-they-won’t-they romance (spoiler alert: they most certainly will!), and singlehandedly revived the Jewish deli business while at it.

“When Harry Met Sally is a beautiful, brainy, touching and lilting romantic comedy that should touch the heartstrings of lovers and those yearning to be in love everywhere.” – The Hollywood Reporter
