What We’ve Learned from Nora Ephron: When Harry Met Sally

When Harry Met Sally

Can a woman and a man just be friends? When Harry Met Sally tries to answer this common relationship question. Harry Burns (Billy Crystal) tells Sally Albright (Meg Ryan) on a road trip to New York City that, “Men and women can’t be friends because the sex part always gets in the way.” Sally disagrees, saying that a platonic relationship between the two sexes is possible. Throughout the film the two characters meet again and again, speaking more about their dating theories. Without realizing it an attraction forms between the friends, debunking Sally’s theory that sex would never get in the way. We wonder if Ephron’s film was a story about physical attraction and friendship or fate intervening. Whatever it is, we learned that the one is sometimes right in front of you.
