Book Digs Into Effect Of Nora Ephron’s Films For Hopeless Romantics

Nora Ephron was known for her ability to get into the minds of women. She was also masterful at a film genre that allows moviegoers' escapism and the guarantee of a happy ending. She’s the genius behind classics like When Harry Met Sally and Sleepless in Seattle.

We talk to Erin Carlson, author of I'll Have What She's Having: How Nora Ephron's Three Iconic Films Saved the Romantic Comedy, about the book.
