Husbands and Wives (Woody Allen, USA, 1992)

In all respects, this is a full meal, as it deals with the things of life with intelligence, truthful drama and rueful humour.
— Todd McCarthy, Variety

Arguably Woody Allen's last stone-cold classic, Husbands and Wives is a brilliantly unflinching depiction of the different factors that both drive couples apart and keep them together (in that order).

Staring Allen's then-partner Mia Farrow and filmed in the midst of the couple's very public break-up, it is a small miracle that Husbands and Wives was made at all – and an even greater miracle that it’s as brilliant as it is.

A typically top-notch Allen cast includes Sydney Pollack, Judy Davis, Juliette Lewis, Liam Neeson  and – trust us, she’s ok – Lysette Anthony.  

In other news - by our reckoning this is the 100th film we've shown since started in August 2013.
