Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan star in Nora Ephron's swooningly romantic comedy, back on screen for Valentine's Day.
Recently widowed Chicago architect Sam Baldwin (Tom Hanks) moves to Seattle to start a new life with his young son, Jonah (Ross Maligner). One Christmas Eve, Jonah calls a radio show and persuades his dad to go on air to talk about how much he misses Maggie. Among the thousands of women mesmerised by this outpouring of emotion is Baltimore journalist Annie Reed (Meg Ryan). Unfortunately, she's just got engaged to the rather dull Walter (Bill Pullman). Previously best known for writing the timeless 'When Harry Met Sally', Nora Ephron assembled a dream cast for this wonderfully old-fashioned, beautifully photographed 1993 romantic comedy. It's openly inspired by the Cary Grant and Deborah Kerr classic 'An Affair to Remember'. Nominated for two Oscars, the film also boasts a classy soundtrack featuring Ray Charles and Nat 'King' Cole.
