Harry: You were going to be a gymnast.
Sally: A journalist.
Harry: Right, that’s what I said.
Nora Ephron was one of the first female filmmakers that I realized was female. What I mean by this is that as a child I simply thought of all writers, directors, etc. as either male or genderless - when I realized who Nora Ephron was and that she was witty, funny, fabulous and one of the writers I most admired it opened my eyes to the fact that I, as a woman, might be able to have a creative career.
For a teenager this was a huge realization. She will always be one of my original film idols.
Ms. Ephron will be missed.
