Y'all, I'll be honest. YOU'VE GOT MAIL is literally my favorite movie of all time.

While some of Nora Ephron's other films are far more critically acclaimed, there's something about this movie that never fails to make me feel absolutely wonderful. Maybe it's the charming chemistry between Meg Ryan and Tom Hanks. Perhaps it's the deliciously quirky supporting actors like Steve "Nut Shop" Zahn, Greg "Lone Reed" Kinnear, Parker "She Makes Coffee Nervous" Posey and Jean "He Ran Spain" Stapleton. Then there's the adorable email banter with dated AOL references and dial-up modem connections. And of course, the fact that the entire film is basically a love letter to New York City certainly doesn't hurt.

But if I had to choose the one element most responsible for this film's greatness, it would definitely be Nora Ephron. She wrote the screenplay, and her dazzling insight and humor shine through every single line. She also directed the film, infusing each scene with a lovely, sparkling vibrance and a deep comprehension of the human heart.

With YOU'VE GOT MAIL, Ephron managed to capture 152 insights into our souls, and we'll celebrate her cinematic greatness at this month's Girlie Night. Oh, and if anyone wants to bring me a bouquet of newly sharpened pencils, I won't mind. (Sarah Pitre)

As part of the Alamo 100, this screening will feature free collectible YOU'VE GOT MAIL pins while supplies last.
