Winning story of the relationship between a plucky New Yorker (Bancroft) and a somewhat stuffy British bookseller (Hopkins), told in their back and forth letters as she buys used books from him. They have great chemistry for two people who never appear onscreen together. ( )

Absolutely wonderful! I have watched many times and also read the book. Excellent for both Anglophiles and book lovers alike. ( )
