R.I.P. Nora Ephron - we will miss you!



What is your favorite Nora Ephron film?

Full film list here: http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0001188/
Nora Ephron's Bio here: http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0001188/bio

p.s. At first I thought maybe a poll might not be appropriate at this time, but then I thought perhaps it would be okay since in my mind it is a tribute to her and I have a desire to celebrate her life.

1. Heartburn--loved the way her Meryl Streep stuck it to Jack Nicholson's Carl Bernstein at long last!

That's a film I could watch again.

2. You've got mail

I'm a softie.

Her talents will be sadly missed.

3. I love five of them, but since I'm a 'foodie'


I'll have to go with "Julie & Julia".

4. I loved

Julie and Julia because Julia taught me how to cook. Many of her recipes have become family favorites. And I have been able to teach my son & daughter techniques Julia taught me.

7. I loved Julia Child and watched her

from the time I became seriously interested in food 30 years ago. Meryl Streep was so good in that film that it was easy to look past the less stellar "Julie" parts. Ephron's dialogue for Julia simply sparkled.

5. Definitely Silkwood.

I saw it in 2007 and it blew my mind. Meryl is brilliant in that.

8. Silkwood for sentimental reasons, but I absolutely loved Julie & Julia...

Nora Ephron will always be my favorite screenwriter.

9. Julie & Julia made me want to try French cuisine.

I finally did; it's excellent.
