Same Time, Next Year
Ellen Burstyn and Cosmo Sardo




Overview -
Alan Alda and Ellen Burstyn glow on screen as two people who find long, enduring love with each other despite being married to other people. A fateful meeting at a California inn leads the seemingly mismatched pair into 26-year-long affair in which they meet for only one weekend every year. Altered by the global events of the 1950s, 1960s, and 1970s, skillfully displayed with film stills from the time, and by their personal challenges, the couple grows and changes as the years roll by but never loses the awe that they have found their true soul mates. The dissimilar and quirky characters of the two lovers drive the film, and both Burstyn and Alda soar while retaining the clay feet that make their characters so believable. Based on Bernard Slade's two-character Broadway play, SAME TIME, NEXT YEAR will enchant viewers seeking an extraordinary glimpse of the reality of romance.
