Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan star in Nora Ephron’s wonderfully romantic comedy about two people drawn together by destiny. Hanks stars as Sam Baldwin, a widowed father who has moved to Seattle with Jonah, his eight-year-old son. When the son calls into a radio talk show to find his father a new wife, Sam is an instant hit with thousands of female listeners who deluge his home with letters of comfort. Meanwhile, inspired in equal parts by Sam’s story and by the film classic “An Affair to Remember” Baltimore writer Annie Reed (Ryan) becomes convinced that it’s her destiny to meet Sam at the Empire State Building in New York City on Valentine?s Day. There are just two problems: Annie’s engaged to someone else and Sam doesn’t know yet that they’re made for each other. Co-starring Rosie O’Donnell, Rita Wilson and Rob Riener.
Sleepless in Seattle is a romantic comedy about two lovers who meet for the first time in the last reel. It’s a stunt, but it’s a stunt that works far more effectively than anybody in his right mind has reason to expect.
One of the finest of all Hollywood romantic comedies.
