84 Charing Cross Road

Tonight I watched a gem of a movie titled 84 Charing Cross Road (1987) that I taped from Turner Classic Movies. It stars Anne Bancroft and Anthony Hopkins. It's based on a book of the same name about the true story of American writer named Helene Hanff (Anne Bancroft) who begins a twenty year long friendship with an English bookseller named Frank Dole(Anthony Hopkins). It is a character driven movie with great acting and writing. It is also an unexpected love story as well. Bancroft and Hopkins are wonderful in their roles. It is a charming and sweet film. Perfect for a summer evening cuddled up in your bed or on the sofa.
