DIRECTOR: Nora Ephron

Their second time together after ‘Sleepless in Seattle’, Meg Ryan and Tom Hanks shine in this romantic comedy. It’s that chemistry that helps create the smooth natural tone of the interactions between the two delivering wit, charm and romance in this Valentine story.

Kathleen Kelly (Meg Ryan) runs the family’s children’s book store, the Shop Around the Corner, in Manhattan since the last 42 years. But with the passage of time and stiff competition from newcomer Joe Fox (Tom Hanks) giant chain of Fox Books, a megastore with a cafe and discounted books across the road who is stealing almost all her customers, Kathleen’s store cannot keep up and eventually shuts down. The two become arch rivals. But another story in the film reveals that despite leading businesses in their own way, both are internet freaks with each chatting with an interesting person through the internet. Both are falling in love with their internet friend. Both live in the neighborhood, meet often at different places, go on dates, and continue to meet online until they develop a warm, intimate friendship. Little do they know, it is really each other that they are chatting with.

Will they finally meet? How will the truth about their internet chat come out? What will the confrontation be like? Watch the movie to find out what happens.
If you’ve seen this movie on its theatrical release in 1998, it would be a good idea to see this movie again, for back then, the internet wasn’t as big as it is now. It may seem old-fashioned to teen viewers, especially given the changing face of technology, then dial-up Internet access, to Broadband and much more, but even today chat rooms are still in vogue and internet dating the in thing. It’s a movie you can relate to in this day of cybersex, et al.
