84 Charing Cross Road is a 1987 film based on the 1970 memoir by the same name. It stars Anne Bancroft and Anthony Hopkins. Also starring are Judi Dench and Ian McNeice (who was Fezziwig in the Patrick Stewart Christmas Carol, and was in one of the Cadfael mysteries). I saw this on tv many years ago and admit I cried during part of it, but it is such a sweet story I've wanted to show it to The Husband ever since. It's funny and has no gore, no blood running freely from wounds savagely inflicted, no dead come back and then proceed to drop pieces of themselves all over the place, no one gets tortured, it has not a single serial killer. In short, I've been sure he would like it. And he did.
Roger Ebert finds it a bit slow, "And yet there are people who are pushovers for this material." Rotten Tomatoes gives it a score of 86%.
