A man and woman meet by chance at a romantic inn over dinner. Although both are married to others, they find themselves in the same bed the next morning questioning how this could have happened. They agree to meet on the same weekend each year. Originally a stage play, the two are seen changing, years apart, always in the same room in different scenes. Each of them always appears on schedule, but as time goes on each has some personal crisis that the other helps them through, often without both of them understanding what is going on. Written by

The original Broadway production of "Same Time, Next Year" by Bernard Slade opened at the Brooks Atkinson Theater on 14 March 1975, ran for 1453 performances until 3 September, 1978. The play was nominated for the 1975 Tony Award for Best Play. Ellen Burstyn reprises her role in the movie from the play for which she won the 1975 Tony Award (New York City) for Best Actress in a Drama. Slade also wrote the screenplay for this film based upon his stage play. See more »
Throughout the movie, there are several times where the couple places logs in the fireplace and starts a fire. During the last meeting, George starts the fire and places the screen back in front of the fireplace. Within seconds, the fire is blazing strong. See more »

I have always wanted to see this movie but hadn't had the opportunity until now. It was well worth the wait! I absolutely loved it! Being a long time fan of both Burstyn and Alda, their performances did not disappoint. The subtle comedic jabs of Alda's guilt ridden George added strength to the already deep soul searching hearty dialogue. While Burstyn's ever evolving Doris balanced out the emotional ups and downs of their 25 plus years affair. The in-between pics of the events that shaped the times was a seamless way to move the years along. With such a sensitive subject as this movie examines; it is done in such a way that it leaves the viewer non judgmental but instead routing for their relationship to go the distance. And of course who could go wrong with a soundtrack by Johnny Mathis. SUPERB!
