The 13 worst movie break-ups just in time for Valentine's Day
'Two For the Road' (1967)
Who's Breaking Up: Joanna and Mark
Why are they breaking up: Infidelity, disagreements about children, frequent bouts of fundamental incompatibility, the strains of a 12 year marriage.
Why it's memorable: Or maybe they're not breaking up? Or maybe they already broke up? Or maybe they're going to break up in two weeks? Driven by Frederic Raphael's frequently stunning script and and Stanley Donen's formally daring direction, "Two For The Road" may be a story of a marriage on the cusp of a breakup, it may be an enigmatic mediation on love, it may be a fragmented take on the concept of cinematic romance, but it's probably all three of those things. Audrey Hepburn and Albert Finney are spectacular in a movie that's occasionally sweet, occasionally funny and consistently blunt and honest about the things that bring people together and the things that tear them apart.
