Don't miss this iconic Rob Reiner romantic comedy. In When Harry Met Sally, Harry (Billy Crystal) and Sally (Meg Ryan) run into each other at different points of their lives, but never quite become friends. That's because Harry claims it's impossible for men and women to just be friends. Fast forward to years later, when they meet again at a NYC bookstore. They finally strike up a friendship, but will feelings complicate things? Rated R. Not suitable for children.

Robert Benton's Oscar-winning adaptation of Avery Corman's bestseller takes on contemporary problems of divorce and shifting gender roles, as a jilted husband learns how to be a nurturing father. Manhattan housewife Joanna Kramer (Meryl Streep) walks out on her workaholic ad man husband Ted (Dustin Hoffman), leaving their young son Billy (Justin Henry) in Ted's less than capable hands.

More than forty years after her death, Helen Keller is still known internationally as the little deaf-blind girl, the "miracle child" who triumphed over adversity. It is an image that endures through the Hollywood film "The Miracle Worker", but Keller never chose that image, and she battled against it all her life. Hidden from the public gaze was the real Helen Keller, a flesh-and-blood woman, writer and radical activist, suffragette, and socialist.
