One of my favorite Nora Ephron movies… and one you may NOT have seen! This Is My Life

NoraEphronThis is the first film directed by Nora Ephron. Based on Meg Wolitzer’s novel, it’s a sweet family comedy about a single mom from Queens who becomes a successful  standup comic, but struggles to balance motherhood and career.

The screenplay is by Nora Ephron and Delia Ephron.

With Julie Kavener, Dan Akroyd, Carrie Fisher, Samantha Mathis and Gaby Hoffmann.

This Is My Life is a real gem. Film director Lena Dunham (“Girls” on HBO and “Tiny Furniture”) agrees!  Read “Seeing Nora Everywhere” at The New Yorker
