Nora Ephron United States, 1998

Johnny DuBiel's rating of the film You've Got Mail

Have the attempts to be modern for its time dated it? Yup (any attempt by a film or TV show to implement new technology as a central agent in the story is bound to). But damned if this movie isn't charming. I can't put my finger on it, but this one stands above all of the generic, assembly line rom coms of the mid to late 90s (and is FAR less problematic than the other big Hanks/Ryan pairing Sleepless in Seattle)
