I first saw this movie on HBO many years ago and found it to be a wonderful and enlightning movie. Anthony Hopkins' character was the type of Englishman I would hope to find in a bookstore. Ann Bancroft captured the essence of her character. It is a simply wonderful movie where United States and Great Britian merge to form this unique yet melancoly friendship. Bravo!!

This is one of those beautiful, emotional, funny and intelligent films that you love to watch on a rainy day and at some point will watch again. Acting of the entire cast is superb!

This is a wonderful film and, in its understated mode, makes a brilliant comment about relationships.

In these days of e-books, and bland books constructed from franchised ideas and formulas, we are presented "84 Charing Cross Road," a story about a relationship begun because of a mutual love of old great books. Hopkins and Bancroft share a film highlighting both of their genuine personas. Like Hopkins in "Shadowlands" and "The Remains of the Day," we see him in full glory, as a quiet man of grace and sophistication. He owns the English bookstore, and Bancroft's character mails him a request for a book. Correspondence and a relationship begins. Contently and confidently married, Hopkins responds as an older brother might, and the two grow to cherish each other despite the distance. As they care for each other, and slowly, their local friends and family become aware, we see how love transcends the sea. Neither character has an agenda, and this left me feeling a little less cynical about the world around me. Like so many of today's e-mail- and chatroom-only friendships, they learn to appreciate each other, though knowing only the other as they choose to describe themselves. This isn't a story about books or bookstores, despite the honest representation of their demeanor and personality. Any booklover knows the search for a book, and the texture of a bookseller's knowledge and connection with his books. This is a movie about the depth, trust, and love of one unexpected relationship. Book lovers will enjoy the context, and good friends will smile knowingly. --Brockeim

I just saw 84 Charing Cross Road for the second time. It is absolutely delightful. I love the scenes of old NY and London. I am very much like Helen Hanff played by Anne Bancroft. I love books and everything English. I know I will get to visit London soon. Anthony Hopkins playing Frank Doel is also marvelous. So very "British." Judi Dench plays his Irish wife superbly as usual. I highly recommend this film. It is suitable for the whole family. Thank you Mel Brooks for producing it and putting Ms. Bancroft in it.
