Edward's Review of Sleepless in Seattle
Sleepless in Seattle(1993)
Plot/Summary,Sleepless in Seattle, the sophomore directorial effort from Nora Ephron, is a light romantic comedy inspired by the 1957 film An Affair to Remember. Tom Hanks stars as widower and single father Sam. When Sam's son, Jonah (Ross Malinger), calls into a talk radio program looking for a new mother, Sam ends up getting on the phone and laments about his lost love. Thousands of miles away, Annie (Meg Ryan) hears the program and immediately falls in love with Sam, despite the fact that she has never met him and that she is engaged to humdrum Walter (Bill Pullman). Believing they are meant to be together, Annie sets out for Seattle to meet Sam, who, meanwhile, contends with an onslaught of letters from available women equally touched by his phone call. Rosie O'Donnell, Rita Wilson, and Rob Reiner also star.
my what an endearing film this was. Sleepless in Seattle revolves around two people Sam Baldwin and Annie Reed on a quest of love,where one night when Jonah Sam's son calls a radio station and says that for Christmas all he wants is a new mommy. This movie isn't all that romantic as i thought it was going to be,and what i mean is that there were barley any scenes with Annie and Sam kissing, going on dates or fighting for one another in love. But i still think is what makes this film so beautiful to begin with is the way the characters Annie and Sam are just interacting with there friends and family, i feel they both have this sense where they believe that there is love and just search for someone and find each other. I give this movie a thumps up and a 4 and a half out of 5.
