New York! Alicia Keys, Nora Ephron

The city.  A song. Energising.

 

The film “You got Mail” is firmly sited in New York, written and directed by Norah Ephron. One of the joys of having it on DVD is that you get to see one of the extras which is Norah explaining how she wove the different sites of the city into the film.

You get a few minutes of this right at the start of this interview – fascinating to hear how a writer of humorous columns developed into a screenwriter and then a director – lots of say about career choices and experiences along the way.  It is 23 minutes long – but at least listen to the first 5 minutes.  If you are a writer, you may want to see all of it.
