A captivating adaptation of the 1970 book by Helene Hanff detailing an international correspondence between her and a rare bookshop on Charing Cross Road, London, England. Moving in parts and a little slow in others, the film presents an insightful if unhurried picture of international correspondence in the 1950s, and highlights some of the cultural differences between London and New York with wit and charm.
