Name: Sleepless In Seattle
Running Time (minutes): 95
Description: After his wife Maggie passes away, Sam Baldwin and his adolescent son Jonah relocate from Chicago to Seattle to escape the grief associated with Maggie’s death. Eighteen months later, Sam is still grieving and can’t sleep. Although Jonah misses his mother, he wants his father to get a new wife despite Sam having not even contemplated dating again. On Christmas Eve, Sam, on Jonah’s initiative, ends up pouring his heart out on a national radio talk show about his magical and perfect marriage to Maggie, and how much he still misses her. Among the many women who hears Sam’s story and falls in love with him solely because of it is Annie Reed, a Baltimore based newspaper writer. Annie’s infatuation with Sam’s story and by association Sam himself is despite being already engaged. But Annie’s relationship with her straight-laced fiancé Walter is unlike her dream love life in the movie An Affair to Remember.
Stars: Tom Hanks, Meg Ryan and Ross Malinger
Genres: Comedy, Romance, Drama
I can’t believe I just finished watching this. Probably because Tom Hanks was in it and because my favourite audio describer, Lonny Evans, did the narration. Her enthusiasm and lovely voice makes me tolerate a lot of romantic nonsense. I did like the scene in which Annie and Sam almost met.
