84 Charing Cross Road is a 1987 romantic drama starring Oscar winners Anne Bancroft and Anthony Hopkins as two opposites who share a love of books. Soon after World War II, New York writer Helene Hanff (Anne Bancroft) has a passion for rare books but little money to afford them. Helene sees an ad for a London bookshop that sells rare classics at a reasonable price and sends them a list of long sought after books. Bookseller Frank Doel (Anthony Hopkins) kindly responds with a package. What begins as a business transaction transforms into a friendly correspondence and then into a deeper affection even though Helene and Frank live on two different continents. The two correspondents find a unique intimacy with one another that lasts over 20 years, even though Frank remains married to Nora (Judi Dench). Director David Hugh Jones ("Betrayal") brings this unusual romance to life, based on the true story from Hanff's memoir.
