Sleepless In Seattle

BBBB.5

(out of 5)


You could hardly do better in the romantic comedy department than this wonderfully original and witty film.  hears a recently widowed man () talking to a late night radio talk show host about the loss of his wife and his subsequent loneliness. Obsessed with this story that has touched her so, Ryan becomes one of the millions of women around the country who write to him in hopes of making a connection, despite her fiance () being something of a bit of a hitch in the plan. On his end of it, Hanks has enough to cope with trying to raise his son () all by himself, not to mention the recent addition of girlfriend .  The story of star-crossed lovers couldn’t be more delightful, but it’s the little things in between that Nora Ephron brilliantly includes that make the whole thing so magical. The film rests on its two excellent stars, but also couldn’t do without the marvelous support by ,  and  and the wonderful subplot that pays tribute to An Affair To Remember.
