As tributes go, Everything Is Copy is as loving and as well-behaved as you might expect of a doc directed by its subject's son - journalist Jacob Bernstein - to be.
Copy celebrates a brilliant storyteller and her lacerating wit but also recalls a woman who could be bossy, presumptuous, and sometimes mean.
A son's post humous gift to his mother - and often a fascinating one.
A wonderfully insightful chronicle of a woman, her family, the influence of a writer-mother, and her approach to essays, film and life.
If this film inspires viewers to rush out to find copies of Ephron's collected essays, or Heartburn, it'll be an especially fitting legacy.
Jacob Bernstein's documentary about his mother is thus a chance to linger over and re-enjoy Ms. Ephron's insights, which so often created happiness and then ended with her death at 71 from leukemia in 2012.
Becomes as layered, thoughtful, and multifaceted as its inspiration.
With each passing essay extract, snippet of dialogue, or moment of clarity, the reasoning for a film about her beyond mere familial love and celebrity duty is proven.
Telling the story through his own perspective, and doing so in a medium that's new to him, is Bernstein's way of showing that after all, he's his mother's son.
Bursting with so many fond and famous faces that you can imagine its subject swooning with delight - and then criticizing their makeup.
Insightful about the life of a successful writer, engaging about how a smart modern woman navigated the world, but also quizzical about how Ephron was as a daughter, sister, wife and mother.
