RIP Nora Ephron

Sadly one of my favorite screenwriters and filmmakers Nora Ephron has passed away on Tuesday night in Manhattan. She was 71…

She made 3 of my favorite romantic comedy movies “Sleepless in Seattle” , “When Harry Met Sally…,” and  “You’ve Got Mail” ……Her last movie was “Julie & Julia.”

Her breakthrough as a screenwriter was in 1989 When Harry Met Sally was one of the most quotable comedies in movie history…. This is my favorite line from the movie:

“I love that you get cold when it’s 71 degrees out. I love that it takes you an hour and a half to order a sandwich. I love that you get a little crinkle above your nose when you’re looking at me like I’m nuts. I love that after I spend the day with you, I can still smell your perfume on my clothes. And I love that you are the last person I want to talk to before I go to sleep at night. And it’s not because I’m lonely, and it’s not because it’s New Year’s, Eve. I came here tonight because when you realize you want to spend the rest of your life with somebody, you want the rest of your life to start as soon as possible. “

 Her second film as writer/director was 1993’s Sleepless In Seattle, which I love and blogged about here.

In 1998 she co-wrote and directed You’ve Got Mail….. my “feel good” movie of all times!!!….I have to add this final scene from the movie…. Yes, it might be cheesy for some…. but I am a hopeless romantic and I love happy endings….Here’s to you, Nora Ephron… Thank you for giving us these moments….May you Rest In Peace
