Sleepless In Seattle

4

Romantic insomniacs on the skyline

The romcom that launched a thousand Empire State proposals gets a 21st-anniversary reissue on Valentine’s Day.

The late, great Nora Ephron’s second film as writer/director sees unhappily engaged journo Annie (Meg Ryan) stalk lovelorn widower Sam (Tom Hanks) across the US, for a story. Sure, a story...

Psychotic undertones aside, it’s a joyful rebuff to dating myths and it has fun with male-female attitudes to romance, most notably Hanks shedding crocodile tears over The Dirty Dozen after Rita Wilson (Mrs Hanks, since 1988) weepily recounts the inspirational An Affair To Remember.
