Double Feature: SLEEPLESS IN SEATTLE, 1993, Sony Repertory, 105 min. Widower Sam (Tom Hanks) can't get over his late wife, but son Jonah wants him to find a new partner. Jonah gets his dad to call into a radio show, and Sam's voice gets the attention of engaged but restless reporter Annie (Meg Ryan). Nora Ephron's breakthrough movie as a director.
YOU'VE GOT MAIL, 1998, Warner Bros., 119 min. Nora Ephron puts a modern-day spin on Ernst Lubitsch's THE SHOP AROUND THE CORNER as Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan play rival bookstore owners who think they hate each other yet fall in love behind alternate identities online. Both a wonderfully intimate romantic comedy and a broad ensemble portrait of Ephron's beloved Upper West Side.
