Heartburn

Laura R.Comment

I watched "Heartburn" last week in honor of the great Nora Ephron. Have you seen it? What did you think?

Seconds into the movie I was all "ahh! baby Jeff Daniels!" There are all sorts of fun celeb sightings in the film, but not surprisingly, Meryl steals the show. The film is based on Ephron's book by the same name, and is a semi-autobiographical interpretation of Ephron's marriage to Carl Bernstein. The film has a slower pace than her other movies, but the real-life emotions that she captures so beautifully make up for it. I couldn't get over how much her daughter (the baby in the movie is actually hers) looks exactly the same now as she did when she was a toddler.

Is "Heartburn" amazing? I wouldn't say so. But it's Nora Ephron! It has her name written all over it. It's good. Add it to your queue and prepare to ache over Meryl's crazy hair, her amazing pregger fashion sense and most of all, her marriage.
