Actors, writers, journalists, filmmakers, friends and family, all gathered at the Museum of Modern Art on Tuesday, March 15, to celebrate and honor of the writing world’s greatest minds, Nora Ephron. The occasion was the special screening of Everything Is Copy, a documentary about Ephron directed by her son and a journalist for New York Times Jacob Bernstein (for HBO).


Ephron passed away in 2012 due to a long time battle with leukemia and while beloved by many she was an enigma to most. The screening attracted New York’s glitterati who loved Ephron, her work, and the unstoppable sense of humor, such as Meg Ryan, Arianna Huffington, Mort Zuckerman, Alan Cumming, Marilyn Minter, Graydon Carter, Carl Bernstein, Gayle King, Zac Posen, Christine Baranski, and more.

The 90-minute film explores the woman behind the pen—as a writer, a mother, and a wife, a rare familial portrait that illuminates the mixture of public and private personas that Ephron held. The film also addresses the often sad and lonely part of private figures’ public lives and shows Ephron during her struggle with the disease. Ephron has not told anyone about her sickness and the film gives a rare glimpse at this tragic moment as well as the relationship with her ex-husband.

Following the screening, guests were invited to a celebration part also held at the MoMA, where guests toasted the success of the film and the extraordinary woman behind it. In a world where everything is copy, Ephron was a true original.
