The Shop Around the Corner

Set in a Budapest in the run-up to Christmas, this delicate comedy follows the obstacles blocking the path of potential lovers Alfred and Klara, fellow workers in a gossip-ridden emporium, unaware that they are courting one another by mail in an anonymous correspondence. The inspiration behind Nora Ephron’s 1998 You’ve Got Mail, and previously unavailable in UK cinemas, this romantic story is one of Hollywood’s most exquisite depictions of old central Europe and perfect seasonal fare.
