Nora Ephron reported dead

Nora Ephron was that rare thing in today’s world: a wit.

It was always a pleasure to see her interviewed…never neutral, and yet, not abrasive.

She is most associated with rom cams, but out of the eight movies she directed, two of them were fantasies:

Michael starred John Travolta as an earthy Angel, and the meta-version of Bewitched, starred Nicole Kidman.

We can honestly say that those won’t be held up as her greatest works (those would be Sleepless in Seattle, and When Harry Met Sally…), but we mourn the loss of a truly American voice.
