YOU’VE GOT MAIL

There's something about YOU'VE GOT MAIL that never fails to make me feel absolutely wonderful. Maybe it's the charming chemistry between Meg Ryan and Tom Hanks. Perhaps it's the quirky supporting actors like Steve "Nut Shop" Zahn, Greg "Lone Reed" Kinnear and Jean "He Ran Spain" Stapleton. (New York City itself also makes for a valuable addition to the cast.) Then there's the adorable email banter with dated AOL references and dial-up modem connections. But if I had to choose the one element most responsible for this film's greatness, it would obviously be Nora Ephron. As the screenwriter and director, she infused every scene with sparkling humor and a deep comprehension of the human heart. In other words, this movie is 152 insights into my soul. (Sarah Pitre)
