’84 Charing Cross Road’, adapted by James Roose Evans from the book by Helene Hanff. Directed by Horrie Leek. The charming true story of the business letters between a struggling young writer in New York and an antiquarian book store in London. In a sense, these are also love letters. They are about the love of good literature. The story unfolds over a twenty year period, beginning in 1949 when Helene Hanff first writes to Marks & Co., and ends in 1969 with the death of Frank Doel, the delightfully dusty supplier of so many old volumes to Helen who has shown her gratitude through the years by sending ‘care packages’ to the book store staff.
