This conversation with author, Erin Carlson of I'll Have What She's Having: How Nora Ephron's Three Iconic Films Saved the Romantic Comedy made me so unbelievably happy! Erin and I discuss one of our favorite Nora Ephron films, You've Got Mail. Erin shares anecdotes from the set based on sources she spoke to, stories of Nora and the famous dialogue she created and tidbits from her interviews with the cast including Meg Ryan and Tom Hanks.
As we go through our thoughts on this iconic and beloved romantic comedy, Erin and I contemplate the themes of dreams, forgiveness, your purpose in life and what it means to find the person that is right for you. As You've Got Mail is a love letter to words so is this conversation a love letter to creator Nora Ephron and this magical movie. If you are a fan of You've Got Mail, you'll love this conversation and leave feeling all the good.
