You’ve got mail

You’ve got mail (1998)- Nora Ephron

You’ve got mail is a lovely rom-com that leaves a pleasant taste in the mouth.  It is airy and lovely, and still touches on some interesting issues and (despite using hilariously archaic web technology) discusses chatroom anonymity and web-etiquette.  But what has it got to do with Pride and Prej?

Graphic novels are a guilty pleasure of mine, but with a film already in the making… is this a PPZ overkill?  I have read some people say they would never read the book, but would give the graphic novel a look- so maybe it’s appealing to a whole new audience.  Maybe it’s getting other people into classics.  Maybe it should be released a lot later on. Maybe it’s not.  I don’t know. Continue reading
