Academy Award® winners Anne Bancroft and Anthony Hopkins sparkle in this witty, touching drama about a transatlantic romance that begins at 84 Charing Cross Road. Helen Hanff (Bancroft), a vivacious New York writer with a passion for literature, writes to a London bookstore in search of rare English classics. Frank Doel (Hopkins), a good-natured, reserved Englishman, answers her request - thus beginning an extraordinary relationship that spans two continents and two decades. Although their personalities and cultures are miles apart, their friendship blossoms into a deeper affection. For twenty years they share intimate, oftentimes-humorous reflections about their dreams and their lives, and in doing so, develop an abiding closeness.
