Today's release : You've Got Mail on Blu-Ray

February 01, 2011

The romantic comedy You've Got Mail is released today on Blu-Ray in the United States by Warner Home Video. The 1998 movie was directed by Nora Ephron and starred Tom Hanks, Meg Ryan, Greg Kinnear, Dave Chapelle and Dabney Coleman, among others.

This movie was the third (and probably the best) collaboration for Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan, after Joe Versus the Volcano (1990) and Sleepless in Seattle (1993) and is a remake of the 1940 Jimmy Stewart film, The Shop Around the Corner.


I don't know about you, but this movie is one of my absolute favorites. Here's the story if you don't know it :

Kathleen Kelly, owner of a little and famous bookstore for children's books, has an affair. Being together with Frank Navasky, a well-known journalist, she betrays him by e-mailing secretly and anonymously with a (also betraying) man whom she met in a chat room. Suddenly, her business gets endangered by the opening of Fox Books discount store just "around the corner". She meets Joe Fox, son of the owner, and soon gets annoyed by his arrogant way of managing business matters. Although getting advice by her anonymous mail-pal, she has to close down her store. But Joe Fox's life suddenly gets out of control when he learns that his anonymous mail-pal is nobody other than Kathleen Kelly.
