The trailer for our first throwback Thursday is for Robert Redford’s 1980 film “Ordinary People”, starring Mary Tyler Moore, Donald Sutherland, Judd Hirsch and Timothy Hutton. The reason for throwing back is because some of the most enthralling pictures were produced back in the good ol’ days. So, here goes: Inspired by Judith Guest’s debut novel of the same name, this movie went on to win an Academy Award for Best Picture. This trailer gives off the perfect tone for the film. It brings out the tension. Instantly, I was intrigued. Perhaps, we are all just ordinary people living extraordinary lives to different ends.
