Throwback Thursday- Annie Hall (1977)

There is an old saying: opposites attract.

In Annie Hall (1977), opposites did more than attract. They had a relationship, but that relationship was not meant to be. Alvy Singer (Woody Allen) is a twice divorced forty something Jewish man from New York who has spent much of his adult life in therapy. His ex-girlfriend, Annie Hall (Diane Keaton), is a Christian night club singer from the Midwest who has a unique sense of style. The movie is told in flashbacks, telling the story of Alvy and Annie’s relationship, told from Alvy’s point of view.

This movie has endured for nearly 40 years for a reason. Funny and quirky, the relationship between Annie and Alvy on screen is very real and very human. This is one of Woody Allen’s signature movies and the reason why it ranks for me as one of the best films of the late 1970’s.

I recommend it.
