It’s being eighteen years after You’ve Got Mail, and both stars share the big screen once again in the movie called Ithaca. This time Ryan it’s in charge by making her debut as a director.
Based on the 1943 novel The Human Comedy by William Saroyan, the film follows Homer Macaulay (Alex Neustaedter), a teenage boy who dreams of being the fastest telegraph messenger in World War II-era Ithaca, NY. His brother Marcus, played by Ryan’s real-life son Jack Quaid, is at war and writes Homer letters full of advice on life, love, and happiness. Their mother (Meg Ryan) tries to hold the family together in the wake of her husband’s (Tom Hanks) death, all while waiting for news of her son on the front lines.
Not an easy task to direct your own son and one of the biggest figures in the industry- Hanks. But according to her latest interview with WSJ: “I loved getting in there with all the different kinds of artists on the set. You can see what Sam Shepard’s process is like or what this little kid’s process is like or even Jack’s process. I learned so much about acting from everybody and about soundscape and about music. There are so many different kinds of artists on a film set and it’s thrilling.”
Are you guys excited to see this reunion of talents?
