Anne Bancroft and Anthony Hopkins sparkle in this witty, touching drama about a transatlantic romance that begins at 84 Charing Cross Road. Helen Hanff (Bancroft), a vivacious New York writer with a passion for literature, writes to a London bookstore in search of rare English classics. Frank Doel (Hopkins), a good-natured, reserved Englishman, answers her request--thus beginning an extraordinary relationship that spans two continents and two decades. Although their personalities and cultures are miles apart, their friendship blossoms into a deeper affection. For twenty years they share intimate, often-times humorous reflections about their dreams and their lives, and in doing so, develop an abiding closeness. Excellent performances and vibrant portraits of New York City and London make 84 Charing Cross Road irresistible, and a film that Joel Siegel calls, "Extraordinary. Anne Bancroft is exquisite...Anthony Hopkins is perfect."
