25 Days if Christmas Movies - Day 23 - Sleepless In Seattle

TWO DAYS TILL CHRISTMAS! For Day 23 of 25 Days of Christmas Movies I chose Sleepless in Seattle (1993). The story begins on Christmas so for me it counts. Plus, I love it. It’s got Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan and how can you not love them? (Even though they spend less than 5 minutes on screen together.)

Sam (Hanks) is a widower living in Seattle who ends up on a radio talk show after his son calls in and says his dad needs a new wife. Eventually, Sam starts talking about how much he misses his wife. Meanwhile, Annie (Ryan) is listening to the show in Baltimore on the other side of the country and falling in love. I honestly can’t listen to Sam’s radio confession without tearing up so it’s no wonder thousands of women start sending letters offering to be Sam’s new wife.

The movie borrows heavily from a classic film An Affair to Remember as Sam and Annie (with the help of Sam’s son) arrange to meet at the top of the Empire State Building on Valentine’s Day. And the ending is perfection…
