“Bernstein’s documentary is an inspiring heartstring-tugger” – Variety

Everything Is Copy is the ultimate tribute to the beloved writer and filmmaker Nora Ephron, who died in 2012, directed by her son, Jacob Bernstein. Though much of Ephron’s work (When Harry Met Sally, Sleepless in Seattle) was alarmingly personal and revealing – her columns, for example, or the novel Heartburn  – this exceptional documentary sheds new light on her life and work. A real treat to the many Ephron fans out there, and to those who are lucky enough to be exposed to her charms for the first time.
