YA Onscreen: There’s Lots More SABRINA In Our Futures

Can you hear that? Are those little reindeer paws tip-tapping on the roof? It’s almost Santa time! But while we’re waiting, here’s your weekly YA Onscreen distraction to take your mind off the fact that you still have four more people to shop for.

Prepare to feel old: You’ve Got Mail is TWENTY years old as of yesterday. I remember watching this on Christmas with my parents and falling in love. Hanks/Ryan are my OTP.

I’m pretty sure we’ve seen this exact movie before with other actors in about a dozen different constructs, but since we do normally enjoy Maisie Williams and Asa Butterfield, let’s give this a whirl:
