Nora Ephron was on my mind all week. I’ve pored through glowing tributes and re-read a few of her essays that gave me so much pleasure. No doubt in her honor, Sleepless in Seattle was on TV last night. Despite being in awe of her enormous talent, I could barely get through the film. In the last scene, when the characters played by Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan finally meet, I’ll admit to welling up. But as the couple walk off into the sunset, uh, I mean elevator, holding hands with eyes locked, I was skeptical about their happy ever after.
