Sleepless in Seattle 25th Anniversary
After his wife Maggie passes away, a devastated Sam Baldwin (Tom Hanks) and his 8-year-old son Jonah relocate from Chicago to Seattle to escape the grief associated with Maggie's death. Eighteen months later Sam is still grieving and can't sleep. Although Jonah misses his mother, he wants his father to find a new wife. On Christmas Eve, Sam (on Jonah's initiative) ends up pouring his heart out on a national radio talk show about his magical and perfect marriage to Maggie, and how much he still misses her.
Among the many women who hear Sam's story and fall in love with him solely because of it is Annie Reed (Meg Ryan), a Baltimore-based newspaper writer. Annie's relationship with her straight-laced fiancé Walter pales to her infatuation with Sam's story and by association Sam himself despite being already engaged. A pure and romantic classic, can "Sleepless in Seattle' find true love again?
This event includes a special introduction with producer Gary Foster and Meg Ryan.
Sleepless in Seattle is directed by Nora Ephron. Story by Jeff Arch and screenplay by Nora Ephron and David S. Ward and Jeff Arch.
Run Time: 1 hour 55 minutes
