    In Honour of Nora Ephron’s Passing…

    6/26/2012

    In honour of the passing today of the wonderful Nora Ephron I thought I’d include a few scenes from some of the wonderful movies she wrote. As a fan of romantic comedies she was always one of my favoutite writers and directors. I may have harboured a secret fantasy that one day she would direct a movie based on one of my books (oops the secret is out!)

    I love her dialogue and her chracterisation. I love the way she wrote friendships. I love the way she captured the details. I love the way she writes family.
    These are just a few of my favourite scenes….what are yours?

    Almost any scene from “Heartburn.” But “You’ve Got Mail” is one of my all time favorites.

    I loved Heartburn with it’s haunting Carly Simon soundtrack.

    Thanks so much for sharing these clips Monique. My favourite is that last Sleepless scene at the top of the Empire State. I got all teary watching it again. I love every bit of When Harry Met Sally. Nora Ephron made millions of people happy! Can feel a movie marathon coming on.

    I was thinking the same thing about the movie marathon…
