1967, Film: "Two for the Road"

The British comedy drama "Two for the Road" premièred on September 20, 1967. The film was directed by Stanley Donen and the main stars are Albert Finney and Audrey Hepburn. It was written by Frederic Raphael and tells the story of an architect and his wife on a road trip to Southern France. At the time the film was considered experimental because the story is told in a non-linear way, with scenes from the present combined with those an earlier time. Audrey Hepburn was nominated for Best Motion Picture Actress and Henry Mancini was nominated for a Golden Globe for Best Original Score.

The successful and wealthy architect Mark Wallace (Albert Finney) and his wife Joanna (Jo) Wallace (Audrey Hepburn) are on their way to Saint-Tropez in their white roadster. The tension between the two is evident, and on their journey they both remember and discuss several past journeys along the same road...
