I love this movie starring Anthony Hopkins and Anne Bancroft. It Is Funny, nostalgic, thought provoking. I love old books and the smell of old books (weird, I know!), so this is a hit with me. I grew up with a Mom that wrote many pen pal letters to friends in Europe. They each had to wait for the real mail service to carry their words back and forth, in the olden days before email. They even sometimes exchanged gifts. I can sense the anticipation in this movie as each party awaits correspondence through the postal service. My Mom was also a WWII teen so she shared many stories with me of that era. This movie talks of the sacrifices that each and every person made on each side of the ocean for the cause of the war. If you want a good movie to watch that is not your usual modern day cookie cutter film, you may want to check out this one.
