The Mirror Has Two Faces (1996)
Back when I saw this at theaters in November of 1996, I was blown away! I couldn't believe Babs could direct such an astonishing, and down-to-earth love story. Regardless of its mixed reviews, I firmly believe that this is Barbra Streisand's best work to date ( The Way We Were was also truly her #1 film!). It covers the awful subject and nuances about horrid, sexless marriages, and in how they, eventually, drive the couple to insanity. The film is revolves around two very unique characters (Barbra, and Jeff Bridges) , and tells how they have been hurt from failed past relationships. The setting is Columbia University (they are both professors) and meet when (again after a failed relationship) Bridges places an ad for someone who has the same likes and dislikes, and whose "physical appearance is not important". Barbra's character,Romantic Literature Professor, Rose Morgan, gives Math Professor, Gregory Larkin (Jeff Bridges), this notion after he steps in to one of her classes where she is teaching a lesson about relationships, and how sex ruins it. He foolishly believes this and asks her to marry him..............
I will say no more. Anyone who wants to see this film, should definitely see it very quick, for I know you will be amazed! Don't listen to all the horrible reviews, see for yourself. You'll LOVE It! I guarantee it, especially if you're a Babs fan.
(1996) 130 mins. Rated PG-13 for suggestive scenes and some mild language.
