Overview

A story about a career television journalist who eclipses her mentor, this drama's plot resembles that of A Star Is Born, and it shares the same screenwriters as those who penned the 1976 version of that film, John Gregory Dunne and Joan Didion. It's based loosely on the real-life story of newscaster Jessica Savitch. Sally Atwater Michelle Pfieffer gets a job at a Miami TV station based on a demo tape from her hometown of Reno, Nevada. The station's news director is Warren Justice Robert Redford, a former high-profile Washington newsman whose career has suffered from his insistence on integrity. He makes Sally his gofer and criticizes her clothes and appearance while she begs him for a chance to go on-air. She becomes the station's weathercaster and Warren gives her the stage name of Tally. With Warren's constant advice, she breaks into news reporting and her star rises quickly as the two become romantically involved. She takes a better job in Philadelphia, with Warren's blessing, and there she soon eclipses the anchorwoman Marcia McGrath Stockard Channing. From there, Tally's career continues to flourish, while her relationship with Warren takes some strange twists and turns. ~ Michael Betzold

    Completely Broken-Hearted after watching this!!

    I recently started watching this movie somewhere in the middle. Something came up and I had to leave without seeing the ending. I saw it long ago but wanted to see the whole thing so rented it from library. Being devoted to Robert Redford, I must say that I really liked his character in this movie... a little more quicker-paced than his 'Tom Booker' in The Horse Whisperer. As the movie went on, I got completely attached to and engrossed in both of the characters and in their love story. Upon seeing the ending, I was just sick! I cried and cried and cried!! I felt like it had happened to me... I walked around the next day mourning someone who didn't even exist! This is by far the SADDEST movie I have EVER seen! I like the rest of the movie but I'll probably never watch it again because of the ending. I can't take it. And I thought An Affair to Remember was sad! LOOK out!
