FSR ’6 Scenes we love from You’ve Got Mail’

Dec 16 • by admin • Comments Offvideo, you've got mail

The website Filmschool Rejects has a very nice feature about their six favorite scenes from the 1998 movie You’ve Got Mail, starring Meg and Tom Hanks. Click HERE to watch the six scenes they chose.

You’ve Got Mail is celebrating its 15th anniversary this week (yes, 15th, also, you’re old, I’m old, we’re all old, but nothing is as old as that dial-up buzzing we hear about 20 times within the film itself). It is stylized as a modern take on the Miklos Laszlo play Pafumerie, which was also the inspiration for the 1940 film The Shop Around the Corner. It’s “modern” because it involves the Internet or, more specifically, AOL chat rooms, early email and the then-wacky possibility that someone could fall in love with a stranger over the net. Ephron, Ryan, and Hanks had previously explored a similar idea with Sleepless – that two strangers could be so destined to be together that they could fall in love via various types of correspondence — but You’ve Got Mail dove right into the burgeoning world of the web while still retaining the sweetness of Shop, which was all about handwritten letters. Like all good romantic comedies, You’ve Got Mail has a big, messy secret at its center: Ryan’s Kathleen Kelly and Hanks’ Joe Fox, a pair who love each other on the Internet without knowing the other’s identity, are actually business rivals in real life. What happens when Joe discovers the truth? Adorableness.(…)

I have added several more videoclips from the Taormina Film Fest into one video. Too bad in some of the clips they have an Italian voice-over translating everything because that sometime makes it hard to follow, Sorry!

Here is another video clip from the Taormina Film Fest. They asked all the main guests to listen to five audio clips from their own movies and guess which ones they are. This is the one with Meg in it. Will add more footage from the Film Fest later, sorry don’t have the time to edit it into one video right now.
