84 Charing Cross Road though relatively little known is minor masterpiece. Anne Bancroft and Anthony Hopkins are the two main characters in this film adaptation of the twenty-year correspondence between author, and avid reader, Helene Hanff and Frank Doel, from Marks & Co. a book seller in London’s West End.
I lent my copy to a friend recently. I think she sums it up well:
“I loved watching 84 Charing Cross Road. What an amazing film. And why had I not ever watched it before?“
