• 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.

      Since it's a matter of good taste that would be a contradiction.

    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.
