Film Icons: Nora Ephron

Anatomy of a Classic

No, she is not related to Zac Efron.

Nora Ephron is a writer-director, one of the few in Hollywood who happens to be female.  Her filmography lists only 15 films, yet a lot of titles on the list should be familiar. She wrote and directed films such as Sleepless in Seattle, You've Got Mail, and Julie & Julia, which also happens to be her last film, and also holds the record for being the first film based on a blog.

Nora Ephron is famous for her romantic-comedy stories, though as a female filmmaker, you'd think she'd have a lot of "girl power" themes in her films. Sadly, there's not a lot. But she does have a lot of strong female characters in her stories, and I think now would be a good time to watch her films again, if only to see how hot Meg Ryan was back in the day.

Nora Ephron. 19 May 1941─26 June 2012.
