There’s Going To Be A Nora Ephron Movie

Thanks to Netflix’s commitment to showcasing interesting and fabulous documentaries – we’re looking at you Dior and I and Stories We Tell – we’re on a major non-fiction binge when it comes to watching things that aren’t our phone or Taylor Swift’s latest music video. And it seems we’re not the only people thirsting for fascinating true stories. The tragic tale of Amy Winehouse, rendered into an angering and beautiful narrative in the recent Amy, broke documentary box office records in the UK and Ireland for biggest opening for a UK-made documentary. Every year the Irish Film Insitute’s documentary festival goes from strength to strength. Not everyone wants to see a Minion.

However there is one documentary on the horizon which has got our antenna aglow. Everything is Copy is a film about writer Nora Ephron, the journalist turned romantic comedy revivalist and beloved author whose passing in 2012 after a years-long battled with leukemia I still keenly felt in the literary world.

We, like every other person who has ever interacted with popular culture, were massive fans of the trailblazing writer that was Nora Ephron. Her movie scripts for When Harry Met Sally and You’ve Got Mail are the hot water bottle of movies. Her non-fiction writing still brings us immeasurable comfort.

Nora just got it, and she didn’t sugarcoat it either. When she offered career advice it was to the point sense. In a 1996 commencement speech, she was upfront with young women about what they faced in the world: ?There’s still a glass ceiling. Don’t let the number of women in the work force trick you?there are still lots of magazines devoted almost exclusively to making perfect casseroles and turning various things into tents. Don’t underestimate how much antagonism there is toward women and how many people wish we could turn the clock back.?

It’s high time the woman got a tribute in the medium she deserved: all talking all moving dialogue. Her son Jacob Bernstein, who writes about culture for the New York Times, made the upcoming movie, but getting the finished product to market proved somewhat challenging. Jacob’s father is Ephron’s ex-husband Carl Berstein, the famed Watergate journalist, who wouldn’t be interviewed for the project until the last minute, the New York Post reports. Some sources say that Berstein the senior’s reluctance was down to Ephron’s novel and screenplay Heartburn, the story of a marriage collapsing due to infidelity, which is obviously based on the former couple’s parting of ways.

Everything is Copy will premiere September 29th at the New York Film Festival.
