Written by Wellesley College’s own Nora Ephron (Class of 1962, died 2012), the story follows the life of Sally (Meg Ryan) and Harry (Billy Crystal) from the time they meet while sharing a cross-country drive to start professional lives in New York City through twelve years of chance encounters, and about as many hairstyles for Ryan.
