Meryl Streep and Jack Nicholson are Rachel and Mark who are really Nora Ephron and Carl Bernstein, the once golden couple of American media. The eventual breakdown of their marriage spawned Ephron’s bitterly comic novel Heartburn and its film adaptation. Both novel and film can be seen as a sweet – and extremely funny – revenge on her philandering husband as well as an exposé of the politics behind the glitzy East Coast intellectual elite. A hidden 80s gem that will tell you all you need to know about love, fidelity and marriage.
