84 Charing Cross Road

Originally uploaded by Adagio.

Anne Bancroft and a young looking Anthony Hopkins come together in this 1987 film based on the book by Helene Hanff and stretching across two continents and two decades. Revolving around books and the love of books it features the growing transatlantic correspondence between a lively New York writer with a passion for English literature and a proper London bookseller. Excellent performances from a cast including the ubiqitous Judy Dench in a fairly minor role and looking just a tad younger too. Treat yourself. Highly recommended.
