2/12 Sleepless in Seattle
This Tuesday, February 12th, we will be celebrating Valentine’s Week with a reading of the 1993 romantic comedy, “Sleepless in Seattle” by Nora Ephron, David S. Ward, and Jeff Arch.
“Sleepless in Seattle,” the sophomore directorial effort from Nora Ephron, is a light romantic comedy inspired by the 1957 film “An Affair to Remember.” Tom Hanks stars as widower and single father Sam. When Sam’s son, Jonah, calls into a talk radio program looking for a new mother, Sam ends up getting on the phone and laments about his lost love. Thousands of miles away, Annie (Meg Ryan) hears the program and immediately falls in love with Sam, despite the fact that she has never met him and that she is engaged to humdrum Walter (Bill Pullman).
