Other than Silkwood I thought her work was kinda schmaltzy. Well, she had a good run, and interesting life. Good for her.

I think this excerpt from the article speaks for itself:
As a woman in the male-dominated movie business, Ms. Ephron was a rare “triple-hyphenate” as writer, director and producer.

I loved ALL her work.

I'm very sad at this. I didn't know she was ill. I just read "I Feel Bad About My Neck" and as usual felt uplifted and even a little bit empowered by her words.

I think Nora Ephron's work was imbued with sweetness and verve and wonderful humor. Her work was also profoundly yet approachably women-centric.

The movie world could use a little of the magic that was "Sleepless in Seattle" right about now.

Wasn't really into her work, but she seemed like a very accomplished lady.
This is a sad day.

she apparently kept very quiet and forged on once she got her diagnosis. She's been sick for 6 years.
so true.
She plowed her way through a man's world and made a huge dent.
Her movies were so great!!!

Agreed!

And her essays for Esquire and the New Yorker were so memorable.

I'm watching "When Harry Met Sally" in her honor.

I read that too and her story made me laugh! She made something of her life and touched the lives of many people. RIP Nora Ephron.

I'm a fan of her work too...she was so very talented. I didn't know until I heard it on the radio last week (or maybe I forgot) that she also wrote one of my favorite comedies, My Blue Heaven.
