Duration: 1 hour, 58 minutes

Hugely successful romantic drama following the 20-year relationship between a political activist and a wealthy socialite. They meet at college in the 30s, when he is a talented but shallow student and she is a seemingly humourless radical. Their initial scorn for each other grows into respect and, years later, love, but their romance struggles to survive their obvious differences.
