SLEEPLESS IN SEATTLE
1993, Sony Repertory, 105 min, USA, Dir: Nora Ephron

Widower Sam (Tom Hanks) can't get over his late wife, but son Jonah wants him to find a new partner. Jonah gets his dad to call into a radio show, and Sam's voice gets the attention of engaged but restless reporter Annie (Meg Ryan). What follows, in Nora Ephron's breakthrough movie as a director, is a contemporary riff on AN AFFAIR TO REMEMBER that's as funny as it is profoundly romantic.

Nora Ephron's landmark screenplay is filled with quotable lines and sharp insights, and costars Bruno Kirby and Carrie Fisher lend hilarious support. One of the definitive romantic comedies of the ’80s.
