• The writer and director Nora Ephron, who died yesterday at age seventy-one, was an icon in an industry dominated by men. Earlier this year, for the Criterion release of Lena Dunham’s Tiny Furniture, Ephron and Dunham sat down for a warm and wide-ranging conversation. One of the things they touched on, as shown in the clip below, was Ephron’s thoughts about being a female filmmaker in America.

    I can only wait with dread for the inevitable "TINY FURNITURE SUX" comments to come rolling in.

    When you visit this video on youtube, you guys wrote nothing in the description but one sentence describing what we're seeing and another with a link to buy this awful film. At least have the respect to stop shilling your dogshit and type a few words.

    I look forward to Criterion's 2-disc reissue of Ephron's screen version of Bewitched, with audio commentary from La Dunham herself. Yes, that was sarcasm.
