Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan star in this romantic comedy from director Nora Ephron. Sam Baldwin (Hanks) has lost his wife to cancer and, left to bring up his son alone, tries to make a new start by moving to Seattle. His son turns him into a radio heartthrob, however, when he makes an on-air appeal to potential partners for his grief-stricken father. Annie Reed (Ryan), despite being happily betrothed, answers the call, and romance blossoms between the two people, even though they live on different sides of the country. The film also stars Rosie O'Donnell, Rob Reiner, David Hyde Pierce and Bill Pullman.
