It's been more than twenty years since Meg Ryan and Tom Hanks made us swoon in Sleepless in Seattle. They partnered again in the 1998 hit You've Got Mail. Now, after a break from films, Meg Ryan returns to make her directorial debut in Ithaca. Hanks again appears, although fleetingly, as her partner.

Ryan has chosen to adapt the Pulitzer Prize-winning author William Saroyan’s 1943 novel The Human Comedy. Ithaca is a coming-of-age story about the exuberance of youth, the abruptness of change, the sweetness of life, the sting of death, and the sheer goodness that lives in each and every one of us.

When his older brother leaves to fight in the Second World War, fourteen-year-old Homer Macauley takes on a job as a bicycle telegraph messenger to provide for his widowed mother, his older sister and his younger brother. Homer delivers messages of love, hope, pain and death to the good people of Ithaca, but soon must grapple with a message that will change him forever.
