"To state the obvious, romantic comedies have to be funny and they have to be romantic. But one of the most important things, for me anyway, is that they be about two strong people finding their way to love."-Nora Ephron
The world is missing Nora so terribly, it was her memorial service a couple of days ago...here are some great celebrations:
Tom Hanks on his friend Nora
Living in You've Got Mail
Seeing Nora Everywhere by Lena Dunham
Nora's own love story with her New York apartment
You've Got Mail is the film I've the biggest soft-spot for. It's Meg Ryan's perfect little Brownstone apartment, her pyjamas, her love of daisies, the adorable children's bookstore; and don't you just lose it when Tom Hanks writes to her “don’t you love New York in the fall? It makes me wanna buy school supplies. I would send you a bouquet of newly sharpened pencils if I knew your name and address.”
Every time. Thank you Nora.
