Are You Sleepless again Tonight?
Having lost his wife to cancer, Sam Baldwin moves from Chicago to Seattle in an attempt to escape the memories and start a new life. His 8-year old son, Jonah, a restless and independent minded child, phones a radio talk-show psychologist and asks for help. He explains in vivid detail the pain that his father endures. As Sam talks about his wife and the love they shared together, Annie Reed, a Baltimore journalist who happens to listen and becomes enchanted by what she hears. She, along with thousands of other women, contacts the station asking for Sam's phone number. Many write letters expressing their admiration of him and some even proposing. Annie eventually flies to Seattle in a feeble attempt to find him.
Meanwhile, Jonah reads Annie's letter and becomes convinced that she is the one who can fill the void in his father's life. He tries to find her, Sam tries to find Jonah and Annie tries to find Sam. And of course, in the end, they all find each other.
Sleepless In Seattle allows the romantic to believe that love still heals the broken-heart, creates hope and fulfills dreams in an age of disillusionment and despair. Sleepless In Seattle embellishes this fundamental truth. It is a subtle reminder that no matter how desperate our situation may be and regardless, how painful it becomes to us, love conquers all.This delightful, romantic comedy has no hidden surprises. You know precisely what is going to happen. But who cares? It is a good family film. Rent the video and buy a box of Kleenex, the women in the house will no doubt shed tears over this one. Well, are you ready to be sleepless after watching it tonight?
