Helene Hanff is a New Yorker who loves books but cannot afford expensive ones. When she sees an ad in the Saturday Review for a London bookstore, she sends them her want list and is soon delighted to receive a package of used books - good readable editions, cheap. She begins a correspondence with the bookseller, Frank Doel. Built on a basis of mutually held taste, knowledge, interests and consideration, the bond between the lonely New Yorker and the reserved Londoner lasts for years without the two people ever meeting each other. Based on a true story and the long running play.

I enjoyed this movie very much and would recommend it to anyone who likes to read. Anne Bancroft and Anthony Hopkins were exactly the right choices to play the characters. It's non-violent, has no spectacular stunt scenes, just a sweet story of two people's interaction over many years.

I saw this move many years ago. It was even better the second time around! Anthony Hopkins and Anne Bancroft shine.
