Today we honor a gifted communicator, Nora Ephron, who died yesterday at age 71. Not only did she have a remarkable life (White House intern during the Kennedy administration, writer for The New York Post, Huffington Post and The New York Times), but she also wrote the screenplay for several of my favorite movies including: When Harry Met Sally, Sleepless in Seattle, You’ve Got Mail and Julie and Julia. She was a talented writer across many platforms. The world has lost an incredible talent. She will be missed.
Here are some of my favorite scenes from films she wrote. These lines are money and some of them I know by heart.
I’m not really a crier when it comes to movies, like not at all. But every time I watch this scene from When Harry Met Sally, I lose it.
