The film has nothing to do with easy nostalgia; it's about real, credible people, and as such finally becomes very moving.

The result of this high-powered collaboration is a movie of such unrelieved genteelness that it makes one long to head for Schrafft's for a double-gin martini, straight up, and a stack of cinnamon toast from which the crusts have been removed.

A staid, static movie that wins us over with its outstanding performances and its love of books.

By a miracle of writing, acting and direction, what could have been a deadly moviegoing experience is turned into something very like pure gold.

84 Charing Cross Road is a movie made for people who love London and books. The only problem is that the heroine doesn't get to London until it's too late, and nobody ever seems to read in this movie.
