ATV TODAY: CLASSIC MOVIE / FILM News Sleepless in Seattle Starring Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan returns to the big screen with a Cineworld exclusive special presentation next month.

Home to one of the most audacious and unlikely first dates ever, Sleepless in Seattle is back in cinemas nationwide this Valentine’s Day ready to win hearts and jerk tears all over again. Directed by Nora Ephron, of When Harry Met Sally and You’ve Got Mail fame, the movie is a touchstone for modern romantic comedies and essential viewing for all aspiring lovebirds.

This Cineworld special presentation of the Valentine’s Day classic is back on the big screen across 68 cinemas for a one-day special.

Sam Baldwin (Hanks) loses his wife, and moves to Seattle with his son Jonah (Ross Malinger) in an attempt to start a new life. 18 months later, Sam is still grieving and Jonah is desperate for a new mother. Eventually, Jonah convinces Sam to pour his heart out live on the radio – he becomes an instant hit with thousands of female listeners and receives a deluge of letters of comfort.

Listening in Baltimore, and inspired in equal parts by Sam’s story and by classic Hollywood romance, is journalist Annie Reed (Ryan). She writes to Sam and becomes convinced that they are destined to meet.

There are just two problems, though: Annie is engaged to someone else, and Sam doesn’t know – yet – that they’re made for each other.

The Cineworld Exclusive Special Presentation of Sony Pictures’ Sleepless in Seattle screens nationwide for one-day only on the 14th of February.
