Pretty Movies: A Tribute to Nora Ephron

27 Jun

I was so sad to learn of the passing of Nora Ephron, the screenwriter behind some of my favorite movies such as When Harry Met Sally, Sleepless in Seattle and You’ve Got Mail.

She was a sharp observer of human nature and had a gift for parlaying everyday situations into print and ultimately the silver screen, through characters that reminded us of our friends and family (but maybe just a little bit funnier).

As a journalist turned screenwriter, Nora possessed writing chops that earned her admiration from a wide range of fans.

In the design world, Nora was also known for the fabulous interiors found in her films, especially true in the homes of her leading ladies.

I wrote about the beautiful sets of You’ve Got Mail this fall, and I’ll leave you today with some more shots of some of the worlds Nora created through her stories.

What is your favorite Nora Ephron movie?

    Definitely a toss up between You’ve Got Mail and Julie and Julia…and Sleepless in Seattle. Ok all of them:) Nice little post! I definitely gasped when I read the news online.

      Thanks Andrea. Me too! She was such a talent. I actually haven’t seen Julie and Julia…it’s the only one I’ve missed. I’m going to check it out soon.
